HOW WE MONITOR PEOPLE WHO WITHDRAW MONEY FROM BANKS AND LATER ROB THEM- SUSPECTS

A suspected criminal paraded by the police in Zamfara State has narrated how he robs people after they withdraw cash from banks.

The police spokesperson in Zamfara, Muhammad Shehu, claimed the suspect, Umar Usman, 39, in a confessional statement, said he is a member of a syndicate that specialises in monitoring customers who withdraw money in cash from banks and other financial centres, only to rob them afterwards.

The suspect allegedly confessed that he and other members of the syndicate operate in Borno, Bauchi, Kebbi and Sokoto states.

The police said the suspect’s confession led to the recovery of N3,500,000 belonging to one Nura Shinkafi, attached to Zamfara State Investment Office, Gusau.
