According to Northern City News gathered, the men robbed their victims, Saidu Shehu and Moses Andrawus, both of Majame village, of one Bajaj motorcycle on their way to Salka.

The victims were attempting to remove a barricade on the road when the suspects emerged from the bush, wounded them and made away with their bike.

One of the suspects, Shekere, told our correspondent that he engaged in robbery to raise money for cattle business.

‘I am a farmer but the money I’m making was not enough to start cattle rearing business which required substantial amount of money and now that l am in the police net, my hope and aspiration is dashed.
