The police in Niger State have arrested three men who allegedly belong to a gang of motorcycle thieves terrorising Ebbo community in the Lapai area of the state.

Confession; “The moment I stopped any of my victims with the charms on my palm, I will shake his hand and whatever I asked him to do, he will do it without question and I will take away the motorcycle."

The suspects, Umar Idris, 21, Mohammed Gazuma, 24, and Emmnuel Titus, 24, all from Kpatsuwa village in the Abaji Area Council of Abuja were spotted with a motorcycle suspected to be stolen and were subsequently intercepted by police operatives.
