The Katsina State Police Command on Monday 15 June through the commissioner of police, Sanusi Buba placed a bounty of 5million naira dead or alive on the head of a notorious bandit leade, Adamu Alero (Yankuzo).
He is a young man of 45yrs from Yankuzo village, Tsafe LGA of Zamfara. He is a leader of a notorious bandit group terrorizing Katsina and Zamfara states.
In recent weeks, bandit attacks have claimed not less than 20 lives including that of a village Head and was said to be masterminded by Aliero at Kadisau, a village under Faskari local Government Area of Katsina state
With the present bounty declared on his head, I doubt if he will go scot-free once a good information leading to his arrest is provided to the police.
The spate of insecurity in the country makes me to believe that Aliero would not find himself back to the society upon arrest as against the believed norm of setting a criminal to work freely after been caught on the order of one top ‘baron’ or sponsors
