Police Arrest Four Notorious Armed Robbery Syndicates In Kaduna


The Kaduna State Police Command on Wednesday confirmed that its operatives apprehended eight suspected armed robbery syndicates as well as four receivers of stolen stuff.

ASP Mansir Hassan, the command’s Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the arrest in a statement issued on Wednesday in Kaduna.

According to him, on May 9, at about 3:00 p.m., a surveillance patrol team from the Unguwan Rimi Division apprehended three suspects, Khalid Lawal, Abdulhamid Zubairu, and Musa Yusuf, along the Yakowa Express Way.

He added that the suspects, who were returning from a robbery operation, confessed to their crimes when apprehended.

Hassan said, “Operatives have successfully arrested notorious robbery suspects who have been terrorizing the Areas of Barnawa, Sabon Tasha and Karji of Kaduna metropolitan area.”

“The case was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation.”

However, he said the investigations indicated that the suspects, who were armed with firearms, knives, and machetes, colluded with other criminals who were eventually apprehended.

The names are Aminu Aliyu (aka Bosho), Idris Ibrahim, Musa Muhammed, Abubakar Lawal (called Dan Master), and Alhassan Musa.

Hassan stated that the suspects targeted numerous hotels in the city, including Abello, Geomerry, Harmony, and Apple Gate Hotel.

He added, “They attacked the lodgers and staff, robbing them of valuable items such as two motor vehicles (Peugeot 206 and 307), mobile phones, and computers.

He said, ”In one particularly violent incident, the gang severed the right hand of a victim.”

Mobile phones and computers had been successfully recovered, but the two cars had yet to be discovered, Hassan stated.

He also said that the police’s efforts resulted in the arrest of the culprits who were buying the stolen phones.

“The receivers include Abubakar Yahaya, Abdullahi Abubakar, Muhammad Yusuf, and Muhammad Abdulkadir Dada, who in particular specialized in unlocking phones and altering their IMEI numbers to render them untraceable,” he said.

According to Hassan, the Command is still committed to safeguarding the safety and security of all citizens.
