KATSINA: Armed robbers dispense free fuel to motorists


Armed robbers on Saturday night dispensed free fuel to motorists along Katsina/Jibia road, from the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation mega filling station located along the road. They later carted away money made for the day.

Eyewitnesses said the incident occurred about 8 p.m.

According to the witness, the robbers arrived posing as security agents before going on with the business of the day.

Done with what they came for, they reportedly took over the sale of the fuel and dispensed fuel to the bewildered motorists without harming them.

The witnesses could not, however, give the exact number of the armed robbers or the type of uniforms they were putting on, but they insisted that the operation lasted ‘’few minutes’’.

Katsina Police command spokesman, Dsp Gambo Isa, could not be reached for comments by press time.
