Yola—Adamawa State Police Command has arrested the five members of a robbery gang that had been terrorising the people of Adamawa and Taraba states.

According to Adamawa State Police Command spokesman, Othman Abubakar, the five suspects and their compliances now at large, were alleged to have robbed one Umaru Fali, owner of Hometel Hotel on Army Barracks Road, Jimeta, in December 2015 and made away with his Toyota Avalon Car and $10,000.
