In a news that was published yesterday, it was made known that the police operatives of Taraba State Police Command, have successfully apprehended four suspected bandits and recovered weapons back from them.

Information given concerning their arrest made it known that they were apprehended by personnel of Operation Puff Adder II, in a Fulani camp near Garun-Gabas Village, of Rafi Local Government Area of the State, after some residents reported their nefarious activities.

Taking a look at their facial looks and their ages, one will know that the bandits are too young to be getting themselves involved into banditry activities at their age because, information made it known that, Shehu Usman is 21 years of age, Idris Ado is 19 years of age, Nasiru Dogo is 20 years of age, while the fourth suspect, Umar Yahaya is 21 years of age.

One will see that the arrested suspects are all young boys, who ought to either be in school right now or be learning a handiwork they can do to feed themselves and their family members later in the future but unfortunately, their eyes have been opened to criminal activities, which might be difficult for them to leave even if they are eventually released.

This is a menace that should be addressed in the northern part of the country because, criminal elements are brainwashing young men into committing crimes, so that they can be making money for them. If this is not addressed properly and urgently among teenagers and youths in the northern part, the issue of banditry might continue to increase on daily basis.
