Bandits fleeing Zamfara to Taraba arrested by NSCDC

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC) have arrested three bandits who fled Magami area, Zamfara, due to heavy security presence.

Ikor Oche, the NSCDC Public Relations Officer, confirmed the development at a news conference, stating that the suspects were arrested at the state mass transit motor park in Gusau on Monday.

Mr Oche said the suspects were arrested while trying to board a vehicle leaving for Taraba to join other members who had already relocated.

“Tukur Halilu, 27 years, is from Gabaru Village, Nahuche district, Bugudu Local Government Area of the state, and under a notorious bandits leader, Magajin Kaura,” the spokesperson said. 

According to him, Halilu, was confirmed to be engaged in cattle rustling in all the villages around the Bugudu local government area. 

He said two other suspects, Hussaini Altine, 40, and Abubakar Altine, 60, were from Agamalafiya village, Rijiya ward, Gusau Local Government Area.
“Although Abubakar Altine claims innocent, Hussaini confesses to belong to the camp of notorious bandits, Gugurawa,” he said.

Mr Oche, however, said that Hussaini Altine had taken part in three different bandits attacks in Kurya, Bagawuri, Agamalafiya and Rijiya.

He added that the suspects were under intensive investigation that could spark further arrest of more suspects before being charged to court.
