Kano State Commandant of NSCDC, Lawal Falala, told newsmen in Kano on Friday that the arrest was possible because of a complaint by the owner of the motorcycle, which was swiftly followed up with an investigation.
According to him:
“This incident of stealing a motorcycle took place in Dawakin Kudu Local Government of Kano State.
“The principal suspect, Nura Muhammad, stole the keys to a motorcycle and kept it with him for about three days before he later went back and stole the motorcycle.
“He then proceeded to sell the motorcycle to someone else. As he was waiting to collect the money for the motorcycle from the buyer, the owner of the motorcycle came to make a report at our command here.
“Following a swift investigation by our men, the suspect was arrested. He had even collected part of the cash payment for the motorcycle.”
Falala named three other suspects as Usman Ayuba, Umar Usman, and Nazifi Ibrahim.
