“The robbery suspects who have confessed are Ibrahim Garba, Adamu Ali and Abdulrahaman Adamu. They conspired and robbed one Iliya Musa of N49,000 while armed with dangerous weapons on 3rd July 2020.

“Musa Inusa, at about 2330hours on 18th April 2020 robbed one Abdulkarim Umar of his tricycle while being transported to Modusuku in Biu Local Government Area. The suspect repeatedly stabbed the rider before dispossessing him of his tricycle.
