Po­lice in Gombe State ar­rested 10 armed youths at the venue of last Satur­day’s state congress of the All Pro­gres­sive Congress (APC).

The com­mand’s Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Fwaje Ata­jiri, made this known yes­ter­day while parad­ing them along­side six oth­ers ar­rested over their al­leged in­volve­ment in var­i­ous crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties.

He said the youths, who were pa­raded with the weapons, have been dis­rupt­ing peace in the state cap­i­tal.

He said three of the pa­raded sus­pects were ar­rested at the res­i­dence of a prom­i­nent cit­i­zen of Kal­tungo town in Gombe State on Thurs­day, April 10.

He said the other three at­tacked a mo­tor­cy­clist on Fri­day night around Barunde in the state cap­i­tal, dis­pos­sess­ing him of his mo­tor­cy­cle, hand­set and money.

Ata­jiri said the vic­tim took to his heels and was res­cued by po­lice­men who were on pa­trol. He added that all those ar­rested would be charged to court as soon as in­ves­ti­ga­tion is com­pleted.
