“After a week, she went back to the same location and stole 14 goats which she took to Misau market for sale as usual, but luck ran out on her as she was arrested by NSCDC personnel attached to Misau Division. The suspects will be charged to court immediately after investigations.

The PRO also said that the Command under the leadership of Commandant Nuraddeen Abdullahi successfully arrested some suspected political thugs popularly known as (Sara-suka) for acts of thuggery.

He said: “The suspects are part of a syndicate terrorizing Misau town headquarters of Misau Local Government of the state.
