JUST IN: Two men disguising as spirits arrested in Katsina

The Katsina state police command has arrested two men posing as spirits to defraud people.

While parading Kabiru Bashir and Sadiq Ashiru, the suspects, at the command’s headquarters on Wednesday, Gambo Isah, command’s spokesman, said they were arrested after they attempted to defraud Rabi’atu Garba, a lady.

Isah said the two men confessed that they have defrauded many people in the state by posing as spirits.

“On January 8, 2021, around noon, the command succeeded in arresting the duo of Kabiru Bashir, 27, and Sadiq Ashiru, 30, both of the Danbatta LGA of Kano State, who are notorious fraudsters and specialise in defrauding unsuspecting members of the public through phone calls by posing as spirits,” the spokesman said.

“Nemesis caught up with the suspects when they stole the ATM card of one Rabi’atu Garba of the Mani LGA of Katsina State and started calling her that they were spirits and asked her to avail them her ATM card PIN.

“The suspects deceitfully told her that they were about to bless her by sending N1m to her account and directed her to go to the UBA branch in Katsina and update her account. She became suspicious and reported the matter at the central police station, Katsina.

“In the course of investigation, the suspects were trailed and arrested.”
