The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested two armed robbery suspects in Hayin Malam Bello community of the Igabi Local Government Area on Tuesday.
The command’s spokesperson, ASP Mansir Hassan, confirmed the arrest on Wednesday.
Hassan said, “Police received a distress call from Hayin Malam Bello community, that some unscrupulous robbery syndicate on motorcycles were operating in the area.”
He explained that the suspects were using an object suspected to be a gun and dispossessing them of their phones and other valuables.
Hassan added, “On receiving information our operatives stormed the scene and arrested two of the suspects who were all from the Rigasa area in Igabi LGA.”
He said that the gang leader popularly known as T-Pain, who was confirmed to be in possession of an English pistol, escaped.
He, however, said that the investigation was going on in earnest and efforts were being intensified to arrest the fled gang leader.
Hassan appealed for timely and useful information from the residents to nip crimes in the bud.
