A notorious bandit leader identified as Bello Galaduma has been arrested in Sokoto by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.
The spokesperson for NSCDC, DCC Olusola Odumosu, noted that the 40-year-old had been on the agency’s wanted list for more than two years.
Odumosu in a statement released on Wednesday said Galaduma liaised with other criminals by giving them information of persons to be kidnapped.
It was reported that the bandit leader also served as their supplier of drugs and other items they used for nefarious activities.
Intelligence showed that Galaduma formerly operated in Niger State before relocating to Sokoto where he was arrested.
Odumosu said the State Command “laid siege in the Aliyu Jodi area where Galaduma went to buy drugs and also to satisfy his sexual urge”.
NSCDC added that the criminal is being grilled to provide information that would lead to the arrest of his colleagues.
