The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps has captured a notorious bandit named Bello Galadima (NSCDC).
The 40-year-old bandit has been on security authorities’ wanted list for more than two years.
The Corps’ Commandant-General Ahmed Audi commended the Sokoto state command for the arrest, according to a statement signed Wednesday in Abuja by the NSCDC director of public relations, DCC Olusola Odumosu.
The arrest was made possible, according to Audi, because of actionable intelligence acquired by officers and men of the NSCDC, Sokoto state command, who “reacted swiftly and lay siege in the Aliyu Jodi region of Sokoto state, where he went to buy drugs and also to satisfy his sexual want.” During this period, the gallant officers wasted no time in putting an end to his banditry.
