How Abandoned Torch Exposed Suspected Robber In Katsina

A small torch allegedly left behind by a suspect, Nura Labaran, after a robbery operation in Katsina State, has led to his arrest and arraignment for armed robbery, Punch Metro reports.

The 22-year-old resident of Gago village in Dutsinma Local Government Area of the state, who is currently on bail, was also found in possession of a sheep suspected to have been stolen.

Labaran is facing criminal charges in line with provisions of Section 1(2) (a)(b) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provision Act, Cap 11, LFN, 2004 and Section 319 of the Penal Code.
