Repentant thief re-arrested for armed robbery in Kano

The Kano State Police Command has confirmed the re-arrest of Bahago Afa, a suspected criminal ringleader who repented recently.

The state Commissioner of Police, Usaini Gumel made the disclosure on Friday while parading the ring leader and six others arrested for armed robbery.

Gumel said police officers under its command had neutralised several networks of criminals that had turned the state into a hub of thuggery, armed robbery, and other criminal activities.

The commissioner went on to declare 72 others wanted. He also warned any other repentant criminal among the 700 on the police list against returning to a life of crime, adding that the command has neutralised thuggery in the state.

He said; “Already, there are over 700 repentant criminals on our lists, and anybody among them that dares to go back will be declared an enemy of peace just like Bahago Afa and others.

“Today, we have taken care of Daba ‘thuggery’, but they are today carrying out robbery activities, and conducting an organised crime that is now nothing but robbery.

“All those that are declared enemies of peace, 72 of them are wanted and anywhere police or any other person sees them, they should arrest them and bring them before the police.”
