Repentant notorious bandits working with katsina state Government arrested for armed robbery and cattle casting

Three suspected bandits who claimed to have repented have been arrested by the Katsina Police Command after an 

attempted robbery attack.

The suspects were said to have been offered employment by the Katsina State Government and were working in collaboration with the office of the Special Adviser to the state government on security in order to help strengthen the fight against banditry in the State.

However, instead of doing their job as expected, they were rather using it to rob and defraud people.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Katsina State paraded the suspects before journalist at the Police Command on Wednesday.

The command revealed that unknown to the government, the suspected bandits while pretending to have repented were still engaging in robbery and cattle rustling until they were exposed in a foiled attack by the police.

According to SP Gambo, the arrested suspects who were on the government payroll enjoy the sum of N110,000 monthly as salary by the state government.

The hoodlums who confessed to have committed the crime were identified as Abdullahi Mai-Rafi 43, of Kofar Marusa Lowcost, Katsina, Abbas Haruna alias Dogo-Abbas 34, of Filin Polo Quarters, Katsina, and Usman Hassan, (aka Manu) 50, of Ganuwa village, Charanchi LGA of Katsina State.
