A vigilante group in Nasarawa has apprehended a suspected robber identified as Paul John during an operation.

John was arrested on Monday in Lake Garden town in Keffi Local Government Area, LGA of the state while allegedly robbing female students who reside in the area.

Paul was accompanied by one Gambo. The duo reportedly held their victims to ransom at gunpoint but luck ran out on them after a neighbour heard the screams of the students and alerted the security operatives, who swooped in immediately.

Paul was apprehended while Gambo reportedly fled. The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the state, ASP Ismaila Numan, who paraded the suspect before newsmen in the state on Tuesday, said he will be charged to court on completion of investigation.

The PPRO further noted that efforts were on to apprehend the fleeing suspect and that John was helping the police with investigations.

In his confession, Paul reportedly said, “I graduated since 2012 and I haven’t been able to secure a job, so I took to crime to make a living.”
