The Police in Katsina State have arrested three suspected robbers who use charms to break into houses in Daura Local Government Area.
Public Relations Officer, SP Gambo Isah announced their arrest in a statement on Tuesday.
The spokesman disclosed that the trio were apprehended following a tip off last week.
They are Abdullahi Sa’idu, 50, from Hadejia in Jigawa; Umar Abubakar Faruk, 23, from Badawa Quarters in Kano, and Zakariyya Hussaini, 25, from Yar Leman in Jigawa.
Their luck expired after they broke into the homes of Idris Ahmed, Mujihabi Yusif, Sa’a Abdu, Ibrahim Sani and Umar Sani, all of the same address.
“The suspects confessed to using charms that would lure their victims to sleep until they would have finished committing their nefarious act”, Isah noted.
They also confessed to have gotten their charms from a ritualist in Niger Republic.
Exhibits recovered include fabricated keys, house-breaking implements, a machete, five mobile phones, iron pinches and charms.
The suspects would be charged to court after completion of the further investigations
