The gang has been carrying out its operations seamlessly for some time in Bauchi State.

It was responsible for several extrajudicial killings across the state, including the killing of two people about three weeks ago.

The gang, however, met his Waterloo on Thursday, as four members were arrested by the Bauchi State Police Command.

The Commissioner of Police, Bauchi State Command, Garba Umar, told reporters on Thursday that the arrested were based based on intelligence the police received from members of the community.

Umar said he recently held a meeting with the Myetti Allah group which denied knowledge of the syndicate responsible for the killings of kidnappers and cattle rustlers.

The police boss gave the names of the suspects as Adamu Abubakar, male (52) (gang leader), Muhammad Lawan, male (52), Ahmadu Gambo, male (38) and Mohammed Tukur, male (50), all of Galambi Ward of Bauchi State.

He said two fabricated guns were recovered from the suspects.
