An attempt to rob two friends in Katsina state has landed the suspects in trouble as one of the victims overpowered a member of the robbery squad during the robbery attempt and dragged him to the police station.

Reports have it that 20-year-old Danladi Auwalu and Yusuf Auwalu and others attempted to attack one Mati Shehu and Ibrahim Isah who were riding on a motocycle along the Danja/Kano village road in the Danja Local Government Area of Katsina state. Shehu was however able to overpower one of Danladi and eventually dragged him to the police station.

further investigations led to the arrest of Yusuf, another member of the gang. Both have since been arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrates Court last Friday.

According to the Police prosecutor, Inspector Sani Ado, investogation is still on. The presiding magistrate, Jajiya Fadila Dikko adjourned the case till Thursday for mention. While noting that the case could only be tried by a high court, she directed that the two suspects be remanded in prison custody.
