The Police Command in Katsina State has arrested a former Jibia local government caretaker chairman, Alhaji Haruna Musa Mota, over alleged ties with bandits.
The Katsina police spokesperson, SP Gambo Isah, has confirmed the arrest of the former chairman.
He added that the culprit was arrested for allegedly aiding and abetting bandits operating in the state.
Gambo further disclosed that the ex-caretaker has already been charged to court.
It could be recalled that an audio recording resurfaced recently where the culprit was heard discussing with one of the bandits’ leader over the abduction of Kankara Stud.
