“Those arrested are thought to be members of a criminal gang that has terrorised parts of the state and neighbouring Kano.

“They were apprehended during a special operation in Larabawa village, Kano’s Gabasawa area, and Larabar Gurgunya village, Taura, Jigawa,” he said.

Mr Shiisu said that preliminary investigation showed that the suspects were responsible for the August 9 attack on personnel of the Nigeria Immigration Service.
