They were said to have committed the crime on November 24, 2019.
The gang was said to have used his ATM to withdraw money from the deceased account and attempted to sell off his Toyota Camry.

He said the strategy he put in place helped led to the arrest of several persons involved in kidnapping, rape and other crimes.
Lawan said the suspects would soon be charged to court.
