Police Arrests 3 Youths Who Allegedly Use "Keke Napep" For Robbing Passenger In Kano State (Photo)

Young people in Kano State, Nigeria, have taken up the profession of three-wheeler riding, commonly known as "Keke Napep", as a profession that will protect them from engaging in bad deeds and help their subordinates. Unsurprisingly, some corrupt youths in the state use the profession as a means of harming the people of the state which sometimes leads to loss of life.

According to a report, Kano State Police Command under the command of CP, Samaila Shuaibu Dikko FSI has confirmed the arrest of three youths accused of using "Keke Napep" to rob a man at the time he demands the driver of the tricycle machine to take him to his place of business.

Meanwhile, the Kano State Police Spokesperson, DSP, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, made the post on his Facebook page, the three youths from the Kurna area included Aminu Ayuba 16-year-old, Ibrahim Yusuf 18-year-old and the senior among them Sani Idris Muhammad 20-year-old. Kiyawa added that they were able to apprehend them because of the tricycle number that the victim had given them.

Elaborating on the incident, the unnamed victim said, "I rode their motorcycle to take me to Fage. When we reached an unoccupied area, they took me out, and pulled out a long knife and demand to give them my cell phone, wallet and all other things inside my pocket." The victim finally pleaded with the authorities to reclaim his rights and punish the youths for the heinous acts they committed.

In the end, DSP, Kiyawa called on the transport community using "Keke Napep" to take care of the people in the vehicle especially in terms of the way they dress and avoid the ones with inappropriate haircuts, and assured that the commission will take the 3 young people to court to reap what they have sown.
