Girl arrested for allegedly drugging okada rider, snatching motorcycle


Girl arrested for allegedly drugging okada rider, snatching motorcycle




The Police Command in Katsina State has announced the arrest of a
19-year-old girl, Zinatu Abubakar, who allegedly drugged a commercial
motorcycle operator and attempted to snatch his motorcycle.




A statement signed by the command’s Public Relations
Officer, Gambo Isa, made available to newsmen on Thursday in Katsina,
said the suspect belonged to a syndicate operating in the state.




Isa said the suspect drugged a motorcyclist, Gide Wada, who was
conveying her from Kofar-Kaura to Sokoto Rima Quarters in Katsina
metropolis.



The police spokesman said Wada had to park his motorcycle when he
started becoming drowsy after he ate a piece of chocolate the suspect
gave to him as they were moving to her destination.




According to him, it was after the victim parked the motorcycle that
he became unconscious and the suspects’ accomplices, one Abubakar and
Chairman, now at large, attempted to snatch the motorcycle.




He explained that the accomplices ran into the bush when the
condition of the motorcyclist attracted the attention of people nearby,
who apprehended Zinatu and handed her over to the police.




Isa claimed that the suspect had confessed to have been committing
such offence in Kaduna and Kano states, adding that the police were on
the trail of her accomplices.




He advised Okada riders and commercial drivers not to take food from
people they know nothing about, so as not to become victims of robbery.
