Three members of a notorious bandit-kidnapping syndicate have been arrested by the Katsina State Police Command and a ransom of N3.6m recovered from them.

Parading the suspects at the police headquarters on Monday, spokesperson of the command, SP Gambo Isah, said the suspects, Lawali Duna, 40, Muhammadu Lawali Babuga, 22, and Hussaini Abubakara, 30, were arrested by a police patrol team attached to Faskari Division, while on routine patrol along Funtua-Yankara road on February 25.

Isah said the suspects are members of a notorious syndicate of bandits and kidnappers terrorizing Katsina and Zamfara states.

“Nemesis caught up with the suspects when they were intercepted on their way back to Zamfara state from Kaduna after collecting ransom money from the relatives of a kidnapped victim. In the course of investigation suspects confessed to the commission of the offence.” he said.
