Man, 35, nabbed for attempted robbery

The victims, who have lived in Kurani for about two years, were heading to Nigeria, according the police.

In the robbery attack, the nomads fiercely fought back and inflicted cutlass wounds on Npeyin Bonduri’s head, leaving him almost lifeless.

A call was made to a veterinary officer (name withheld) in Bimbila township who subsequently reported to the Bimbila police to rescue Npeyin Bonduri, who was immediately sent to the Bimbila Hospital for treatment.

But for the vigilance of nurses on duty at the surgical ward, suspect Npeyin Bonduri, who appears paralyzed, would have escaped.

“He will be prepared before court once he is fit and can give information that will help us in our investigation.” Three members of the gang are currently on the run, he indicated.
