Two suspects, Umar Sada, alias ‘Yaume’ and Ahmed Adamu, alias ‘Dindingi’, both of Kofar Sauri area of Katsina metropolis on Monday confessed to have killed three persons and snatched away their motorcycles.
Speaking with newsmen while being paraded at State Police Command Headquarters, Ahmed Adamu said they were being paid between N3,000 for each operation.
“After every operation we take the motorcycle to Hirji town to meet one Mikailu Rahamawa who crosses over to Niger Republic to return with our payments.
“At most, we are paid between N3,000 to N4,000 depending on what he tells us, we collect and return to continue.
“So far we have operated and killed three persons at the G.R.A., Lambum Danlwai and Steel Rolling areas.”
For Umar Sada, “All I want is for the police to go after others involved as well as I regret my actions.
“We normally used cables to strangle our victims, they become unconscious and dead before we take the bike,” he said.
Commissioner of Police Usman Abdullahi said, “People should be careful on carrying commuters to lone areas; they sell these machines between N15,000 to N40,000.”
“They have owned up to their acts as from what you can see, we will soon charge them to court,” he added.
