The Yobe state police command yesterday paraded seven armed robbery suspects, who specialised in terrorising Nguru-Kano road in the northern part of the state.
Parading the suspects before newsmen at the state police command Damaturu, the state commissioner of Police, Mr. Marcus Danladi, said the suspects had been carrying out various operations along the road which links Yobe through Jigawa to the commercial city of Kano state.
According to the CP, the suspected armed robbers blocked the road and killed a driver conveying goods from Kano to Nguru as investigation by men of the Nguru police division later revealed, which led to the arrest of one of the suspects who later exposed the remaining six.
Marcus confirmed also that all the seven suspects admitted carrying out sustained armed robbery operations along the route.
