Bandits in Katsina State have ‘arrested’ a scavenger found with stolen items in a village.
The middle-aged man specialized in pulling out metal rods and removing iron bars from deserted buildings.
The bandits narrated how they caught the suspect while on a ‘patrol’ of the area on their motorcycles.
In a video obtained by PRNigeria, they paraded the scavenger and his loot packed inside a cart before a community leader.
The group, armed with different firearms, further lectured the thief about the dangers of stealing.
“Don’t you know that it is an offence to steal? You’re lucky we are handing you over to the authority
“We could have executed you for engaging in a criminal activity”, they added.
The terrorists handed over the accused to a community leader and urged him to ensure he is punished.
They also reportedly followed the chief and witnessed the transfer of the suspect to security personnel.
