The Nigerian Army arrested three suspected criminals in Taraba on Saturday. Army Spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu, disclosed this in a statement issued on Sunday.

He said one of them; Raphael Yakwa was arrested while taking unauthorised and suspicious photographs in a military event.

Chukwu alleged that during preliminary investigation, it was discovered Yakwa was among some youths “being sponsored by certain individuals of Taraba State to cause uprisings in the area.”

“He has also confessed to have participated in most nefarious activities of a group; this was further proven by series of media content discovered on his mobile phone.

“His – Yakwa, confession has led to the arrest of another suspect, Irambariye Mamman, who is said to be the youth leader as well as the leader of the group.

“Also apprehended is one Micah Audu, who has confessed to be member of the gang,” he said.
