Two robbery suspects in police uniform arrested in Niger

The Niger State Police Command has said that it has apprehended two robbery suspects in police uniform, while operating in Ungwan Liman Madalla in the Suleja Local Government Area of the state.

The suspects, Shuaibu Pawa, 27; and Masaudu Haruna, 25, were arrested by a team attached to the ‘C’ Division, Madalla, following a tip-off.

It was learnt that the suspects had earlier broken into the house of one Abdullahi Abubakar, a police officer, and made away with his service uniform and other valuables.

Northern City News gathered that on Tuesday that the suspects had been operating in the area for some time before their arrest.

One of the suspects, Haruna, explained their mode of operation thus, “We can initiate a robbery at any given time without minding what security agencies can do. We rob innocent people at will and make money to take care of ourselves.

“Sometimes, we plant spikes on the road to puncture vehicle tyres in order to rob the motorists and passengers.”

He confessed that they used toy guns and other dangerous weapons to attack their victims.

The Niger state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, explained that the suspects had admitted to the crime.

Abubakar said the operatives recovered two toy guns, two knives and a pair of police uniform from the suspects, adding that they would be arraigned in court soon.
