Armed Robber Apprehended After Victim Overpowered & Dragged Him To The Police Station

A 20-year-old-man, Danladi Auwalu and Yusuf Auwalu, 18, have been remanded in Katsina Prison for alleged robbery. The suspects were arrested for allegedly attempting to rob one Mati Shehu and his friend, Ibrahim Isah, at Babban Rafi Village, Danja area of Katsina State. The robbery suspects with others, at large, were said to have attacked the victims who were riding on a motorcycle along Danja/Kano village road.

However, one of the victims, Shehu, reportedly overpowered one of the robbery suspects, Danladi, and dragged him to the police station.

Another member of the robbery gang, Yusuf, was later arrested following police investigation.

Danladi and Yusuf were arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court last Friday.

They charges against them included criminal conspiracy, attempt to commit armed robbery and illegal possession of firearms.

Police prosecutor, Inspector Sani Ado, said the offences committed by Danladi and Yusuf were contrary to Sections of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provision Act.

Inspector Ado, however, said investigation into the case was still in progress.

The presiding magistrate, Hajiya Fadila Dikko, noted that the charges against Danladi and Yusuf could only be tried by a high court.

She adjourned the case till Thursday for mention and directed that the two suspects be remanded in the prison custody.
