In continuation of their sustained clampdown on crime and criminalities, the operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Bauchi have arrested suspected notorious armed robber, Mohammed Isa, 24, who operates mostly in communities in Misau local government area of the state.

Isa allegedly specialised in breaking into houses and shops in the area and led a gang of other suspected armed robbers giving sleepless nights to the residents of Misau and environs killing some of their victims in the process.

He also supplies stolen motorcycles to a dealer, now at large, based in Kano. He sells the motorcycles at a paltry N40,000 regardless of their market value.
