A suspected infamous thief was apprehended by Katsina State Police Command officers for allegedly stealing an automobile.
Hayatu Bashir is accused of stealing a Hilux pick-up truck from the Katsina State Government.
The vehicle was parked inside a mosque at GRA Mosque during last Friday’s Jumat service, according to the command’s spokesperson, SP Gambo Isah, who revealed this on Monday, September 13.
The vehicle, he added, belonged to the Katsina State Standing Committee on Farmers/Herders Relationship Improvement in Katsina State.
He allegedly stole the vehicle at GRA in the state capital and drove it to Malumfashi town in the state’s Malumfashi Local Government Area.
When a police team descended on him and detained him, he was apparently going to scrape the vehicle into pieces in order to sell it as parts.
