The police in Kaduna State say three people have been arrested at Maraban-Jos and Rigachikun communities in Igabi LGA of Kaduna State for allegedly serving as informants to bandits.
The suspects, identified as Hafsat Ibrahim, Rabi Bala, and Bayero Adamu-all teenagers-were arrested by men of Kaduna State Vigilance Service (KADVS) operating in the communities two days ago and handed over to the state police command for further investigation. Confirming their arrest, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Mohammed Jalige, said all the suspects have confessed to the crime.
According to him, the two young women who were the bandit’s girlfriends, also helped the criminals with arms movement. “The male suspect has also confessed to having participated, along with other gang members, in carrying out operations along the Kaduna-Zaria highway and neighbouring communities, but investigation is ongoing,” he said.
