“On April 13, 2016 at about 6.00am one Gideon Ezechukwu of Dutsen Kura Gwari, Minna who dressed in women hijab was arrested by the police.
“The suspect was arrested while trying to escape with an allegedly stolen red colour Jincheng motorcycle (rubber rubber),’’
he said.
Elkana said that the motorcycle belong to one Mohammed Idris of same area. He said that investigation so far has revealed five accomplices who confessed to the crime, adding that one Yahaya Mohammed was the soothsayer to the suspect.
 
Elkanah added that another suspect, Bala Usman served as spy for the suspected robbers before an operation.
 
He said that three other suspects Nwoke Osita, Ogonna Peter and Onyeka Nnoli kept the alleged stolen items.
 
Elkana said that items recovered from the suspects included a ladies Jincheng motorcycle, four bags containing wrappers, one washing machine, refrigerator, gas cylinder, DVD machine, charms, weaved artificial hair and hijab.
A resident of Dutse Kura Gwari, Garba Bello, told NAN that most robberies in the area occur in the early hours of the morning.

“There have been complains of robbery by neighbours whenever they come back from the early morning prayers. Unfortunately, nobody suspected him.
“Most of the items caught with him were stolen from the house of his neighbour; the motorcycle, washing machine and generator.
“He lives in a room and parlour and he never allow any of his co-tenant to enter his room. The police removed many items from the apartment,”
he said.
