The Katsina State Police Command has declared the mastermind of last week’s attack on Kadisau and sorrounding villages, Adamu Aliero Yankuzo, wanted dead or alive.
Addressing newsmen at the command’s headquarters in Katsina, the State Police Commissioner, Sunusi Buba pledged N50 million as bounty for anyone with information that could lead to the bandit leader’s arrest.
He noted that the 45 year old bandit leader, who hails from Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, has terrorized communities in Katsina and Zamfara States for years.
Buba explained that “Yankuzo coordinated the attack on Kadisau and sorrounding villages in protest over the arrest of his son, Sulaiman Adamu Aliero, by the police on April 4, 2020”.
The Police Commissioner also parraded 50 suspected armed bandits, kidnappers, cattle rustlers and armed robbers arrested by the police recently.
He said 10 AK47 rifles, 25 locally made guns, five pistols, five motor vehicles and 20 motorcycles from the suspects were recovered from the suspects.
CP Buba urged residents of villages in the Rugu forest area to provide information to the police on suspected armed bandits and their informers.
