The Kano State Police have nabbed 128 suspects in connection with crimes related to the just concluded salah celebration in the state.
This was disclosed to journalists by SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, while parading the suspects at the Anti-Daba Unit of the force in Kano.
He said, “One hundred and twenty eight suspected thugs (Yan Daba) were arrested between May 2 and 6, 2022, during the ‘Hawan Idi’, ‘Hawan Daushe’, ‘Hawan Nassarawa’ and ‘Hawan Fanisau’ in all the five emirate councils of the state.
“The suspects were arrested with weapons, intoxicating drugs and stolen property,” which was made possible by a coalition of sister security agencies.
In another development, a young man who was amongst those arrested and who had in his possession Indian hemp, Ayatullahi Abdurrahman (20), said he chose to sell hemp in order to avoid being a theif.
“I had just finished packing my Indian hemp, ready to sell when vigilante personnel arrested me. I sell only Indian hemp, and that too is to prevent me from stealing. I smoke wiwi and cigarettes, that’s all,” said he who lives in Dorayi Quarters.
