A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Kano state has ordered the remand of 25 suspected fraudsters in a correctional facility for forgery.
The suspects include Aminu Salisu, Kamilu Yusuf, Baba Jibril and 22 other accomplices who were allegedly arrested in possession of forged documents belonging to Kano Road Traffic Agency.
Arraigning the defendants before the court presided over by Halima Wali, on three count charge, Tijjani Ibrahim told the court that the defendants allegedly committed the offence on 22nd July, 2023.
