Police in Funtua Local Government Area of Katsina State on Friday arrested a suspected armed robbery kingpin, Tasi’u Bommalli, who later died of multiple gun shot injuries on the way to the hospital.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the police on Monday during a gun battle shot and killed two suspected armed robbers who blocked the Funtua-Zaria Road.
NAN reports that four other armed robbers fled with injuries and the police intensified search for them until Bommalli was trailed to a hut with gunshot injuries.
Bommalli died on the way to the Funtua General Hospital while the corpse was later dumped at the Funtua Central Police Station.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Katsina State Police Command, Ibrahim Abubakar, on Saturday confirmed the incident, saying the deceased was found inside a farm along Funtua-Zaria road.
