Civil Defence personnel in Katsina State have arrested one Al-Mustapha Lawal Iro, for forcefully gaining entrance and stealing cash from the office of the cashier of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO), at its Katsina business unit.
This was disclosed in a press statement made available to Daily Post by the Public Relations Officer of the command, DSC Mohammed Tukur Abdara, on behalf of the State Commandant, Mohammed Sanusi Bello.

According to the statement, Al-Mustapha 35, who resides around Abattoir in Katsina metropolis, works as a security guard with the company.

The suspect, while being interrogated, confessed that this was not his first time, as he has stolen the sum of N300,000 before from the same office with which he purchased a motorcycle.
The statement partly reads:
“Almustapha Lawal Iro ‘M’ 35 years of Abattoir near Janbango in Katsina Metropolis was arrested by our operatives guarding the KEDCO business office for breaking into the cashier’s office where he is serving as a Blue Diamond security guard on 24th November. During investigation the suspect confessed to have stolen N300,000 from the same office two weeks before his arrest and he used the money to buy a used Boxer Motorcycle (BAJAJ) for the sum of N240,000.”
In its effort to restore safety back to the state, the State Commandant, warned criminal element to stay off the state, as its operatives are daily on the prowl to fish out anyone found breaking the law and bring them to book.

Bello also appealed to people in the state not to relent in providing security agents with vital information about criminal activities in their neighbourhood.
