Katsina Ex-Council Boss in Police Net Over Ties With Bandits



A former caretaker chairman for Jibia Local Government Area, Katsina State, Haruna Musa Mota, has been arrested over alleged connections with bandits operating in the state.


Spokesperson for the police command in Katsina, Gambo Isah, who confirmed the arrest, said the former chairman was arrested for allegedly aiding and abetting bandits operating in the state and had already been charged to court.


Although the police did not disclose when Mota was arrested and arraigned, THEWILL gathered that he was arraigned before a senior magistrate court on Friday.


He was also said to have been remanded in a Katsina correctional centre pending when police would complete investigations on his case.


THEWILL further learnt that Mota could have been arrested and arraigned over a leaked audio interview he allegedly held with bandits who were linked to last December’s abduction of 344 students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.
