“We Killed The DPO Because He Was Arresting Our Members And Preventing Us From Operating” – Bandits
The Bauchi State Police Command have arrested four members of a notorious bandit group, who confessed to having killed a former police DPO of the Tafawa Balewa Division, CSP Garkuwa.
The Bandits also confessed to taking parts in different killings, kidnappings and armed robbery incidents in Bauchi. According to the report from Nigerian Tribune, the bandits killed a serving member of the Bauchi State House Of Assembly, afterwhich they abducted 3 of his family members.
While confessing to their crimes, one of the suspects said, “It was all of us that hated the DPO. When he was the DPO of Tafawa Balewa Police Station, he was always giving us a tough time. He was arresting our members and preventing us from Operating in that area”.
We commend the Nigerian police for achieving such feat in their fight against Banditry, and we hope that more bandits would be arrested and dealt with according to the provisions of the law.
