A 20-year old suspected bandit, Aliu Musa, revealed on Wednesday that he once watched an helicopter drop weapons for his boss inside Dinya Forest in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Musa, along with another suspected bandit, Salmanu Isa, 18, were among other suspects paraded for various offences at Katsina Police Command headquarters.
Musa told journalists in an interview that the weapons were dropped in broad daylight for his boss inside the forest.
He said, “I once saw that aircraft with fans on its head (helicopter) drop weapons for my boss while we were inside forest at Dinja. “It was hovering and was very near ground. The man inside would drop the weapons for my boss who would now couple the weapons for our use. “It is only my boss who would go and pick the weapons while we would be watching from where we stood.”
