From Ado Abubakar Musa, Jos

The Plateau State Special Task Force (STF) , keeping peace in the state has returned the sum of N265, 000 to a trader, stolen by armed robbers at gun point.

The STF Commander, Major-General David Enetie who handed the money to Mrs. Caroline Agada, the owner of the money, said the armed robbers had since been apprehended and would soon be handed over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution.

Enetie said “the suspects will be handed over to the police, but we didn’t want to tie down her money by handing it over, since it is for her business and the case may be taken to court.”

Mrs. Agada who was apprehended by armed robbers around old airport Junction after she had withdrawn the money from a bank expressed happiness over the return of the money.

Agaba in her words said, “I was in a tricycle and wanted to buy rice around NASCO fibre when some people double crossed me, but I didn’t know that one of the STF officers was watching us and quickly went after them and arrested them. Today I am happy that my money has been returned to me. I just want to say thank you to the STF and I pray the Lord will give them more strength to do their job.”
