While Parading the suspect at the Police headquarters in Gusau on Saturday, the Command Public Relations Officer, SP Mohammed Shehu, said Commissioner of Police, CP Kolo Yusuf, has reiterated the determination to keep on doing everything within the ambit of the law to end the lingering insecurity bedevilling state.
CP Kolo in his untiring commitment to rid Zamfara State of criminal activities ranging from armed banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other related crimes was in line with the mission and vision of the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba.
“On 12th September 2022, the suspects arrested are members of a notorious syndicate of informants who collaborate with bandits to terrorize peace-loving people of Gusau, K/Namoda, Tsafe, Bungudu LGAs and environs.
He explained that their recent dirty business was when one of the suspects Abubakar Mainasara A.K.A Major in his statement to the police confessed to collecting N850,000 from the bandits to source military camouflage uniforms for them.
He, however, said Babangida A.K.A Major, connived with one of their collaborators, a tailor, one Jamilu Lawali ‘M’ of Gusau to source and sew the uniforms which in the end delivered to the bandits.
