Three repentant Katsina bandits, others nabbed for robbery

The three repentant bandits are Abdullahi Mai-Rafi, 43;  Abbas Haruna, 34; and Usman Hassan, 50.

The command’s spokesman, SP Gambo Isah, told journalists at the police headquarters, Katsina, that the trio allegedly attacked a herdsman, Alhaji Gide Suleiman, on August 11, 2021, at Dammarke forest, in the Ingawa Local Government Area of the state.

Nemesis, however, caught up with them on August 24, 2021, when they allegedly attacked the victim again.
