The Bauchi State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested a 35-year-old woman, Zainab Malam Barka, of Madara district in Katagum Local Government Area for allegedly stealing goats.
Parading the suspects on Wednesday, January 12, alongside others arrested, the Command PRO, SC Garkuwa Y. Adamu, said that Zainab with the help of one Usman Abubakar, 50, specializes in stealing goats.
