The fight against insurgency has led the Police in Katsina State to arrest a 13-year-old boy for killing two men suspected to be bandits in the state.
According to reports, the Police said the suspect, Abdulkarim Mati, was once an errand boy to a bandits’ leader, Ardo Nashaware, who resides in Birnin Magaji forest, Zamfara State.
The spokesman for the Kastina Police command disclosed that Mati was said to have fled the forest where he allegedly committed the act, and was arrested where he ran to after his escape from the forest.
Isah reportedly disclosed that, “The suspect confessed that he was taken away from his parents under the guise that he would assist in rearing cows for his masters, adding that instead, he was taught how to operate AK-47 rifles and serve as a guard for kidnap victims.”
However, Isah made it known that the suspect would be prosecuted after the completion of investigations.
