A few days after he was arrested by security operatives, Abdulrahaman Adamu, the councilor of Kinkiba Ward in Soba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has confirmed his affiliation with armed bandits terrorising the state.
WikkiTimes had reported how Adamu was arrested by operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command on May 13, while en route the enclave of the bandits with an AK-47 rifle. He would later confessed to be supplying the firearm at the rate of N100,000.
He was intercepted on a motorcycle by a police patrol team in Giwa Local Government Area of the state, according to police report.
“I got the firearms from my accomplices and I am to deliver to the same bandits around Galadimawa village for their notorious activities,” Adamu confessed. “They only gave me N100, 000 to get them firearms.”
Adamu however stated that the bandits will return the firearms after being used, affirming, “this is not my first time, I always give out my firearms to my friends who are bandits to use and return.”
“I started renting it out to them many years ago,” Adamu said further, stressing he has never followed the terrorists to any operation. “It is after they carry out their operations that they would later return my AK47 rifle.”
Kaduna is one of the north-western states hardly hit by banditry, arson, killing and kidnapping for ransom. Mostly, their operations go unchecked.
