In the early hours of January 23, 2024, Bauchi police, in collaboration with a security outfit, apprehended five suspects planning a robbery in Shehu Wunti Housing Quarters.
The suspects, identified as Musbahu Umar, Salim Hamisu, Sadiq Nura, Abubakar Aliyu, and Mohammed Mohammed, confessed during police interrogation. Investigations revealed their connection to Kano State and their intent to terrorize Bauchi communities.
Renting two houses in Shehu Wunti Housing Quarters, the gang conspired to rob Dr. Kabiru Umar. Armed with dangerous weapons, they attempted to steal his Peugeot car and other valuables but were chased down and arrested.
Recovered items include two empty white leaders of new matchetes, and one Honda car ignition key, and two Qlink motorcycle ignition keys.
Bauchi State Police Command assures ongoing investigations to apprehend remaining gang members, who will be charged for their established offenses.
