Katsina State Police Command has arrested three suspected fraudsters for posing as evil spirits to defraud people in the state.
A statement signed by police spokesperson, Gambo Isah, said the evil spirits arrested were identified as Usman Adamu, 40; Abba Ibrahim, 38; and Abdurrauf Iliyasu, 39.
“Nemesis caught up with them when they called a woman, Jamila Sulaiman, on her phone that they were spirits (Aljannu), and directed her to go to the outskirts of Yar-Gamji village and drop the sum of N150,000 or risk her parents or children being killed by spirits.
“The victim, out of fear, took the money to the location and dropped it. Furthermore, she transferred another N97,000 into the hoodlums’ bank account.
“In the course of investigation, the suspects were trailed and arrested and they confessed to the crime and other similar offences. Investigation is ongoing,” the statement reads.
