A 37-year-old farmer, Ephraim Kadiri, has been arrested by operatives of the Gombe State Police Command foe the alleged killing of an Okada rider in Gombe and selling his motorbike for N120,000.
The suspect was paraded on Thursday by the Command’s Commissioner, Shehu Maikudi.
According to Maikudi: “He (Kadiri) was the one, who almost caused mayhem for us yesterday (Wednesday) in Billiri after killing a commercial motorcyclist and stealing his motorcycle.
“Restive youths in Billiri thought we were not doing enough and attempted to attack the police station.
“We had to deploy our men there.
“The Area Commander had to speak to the youth as well as engage the stakeholders in the town to calm the situation.
“Policemen were later deployed to Cham, where the suspect was arrested in a hotel, but he had sold the motorcycle at Laraban Lamurde.”
