Information reaching us at Greenbarge Reporters online newspaper indicated how a group of armed bandits ‘arrested’ a scavenger, a middle-aged man, who specializes in uprooting metal rods and removing iron bars, from deserted buildings at a deserted village in Katsina State.
It was learnt that the suspected criminal scavenger was caught by the bandits while they were on a ‘patrol’ on their motorcycles.
An exclusive video showed the bandit-terrorists parading the scavenger and his stolen metal rods inside a cart before a community leader.
Though the date of the incident could not be confirmed from the video but the bandits warned the thief about the danger of stealing.
“Don’t you know that it is a criminal offence to steal? You are lucky that we are handing you over to the authority. We could have executed you for engaging in criminal activities,” the bandits said.
The terrorists, who in the video wielded sophisticated guns, told the community leader to ensure the ‘scavenger thief’ is dealt with according to the law to deter others from stealing.
It was gathered that the bandits did not only hand over their ‘catch’ to the Katsina community chief but also ensured he was later whisked away by security personnel for interrogation.
