Two men suspected to be students of higher institutions in Kwara State were among some armed robbery suspects paraded before newsmen on Wednesday at the Katsina State Police Command headquarters, Punch has reported.
 
The two students are Abdulrosheed Ibrahim, 20, who claimed to be a 300 level student of Kwara State College of Education, Lafiagi; and one Opeyemi Agboola, 19, who claimed to be an ND II Marketing student of the Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin.
 
Police said the duo belonged in a four-member robbery gang recently arrested at Bakori, headquarters of Bakori Local Government Area of Katsina State. The alleged arrowhead of the gang, one Ahmed, was said to be on the run while police said they were on his trail.
 
Both Ibrahim and Agboola said it was Ahmed who brought them to Katsina State on July 29, under the pretext that he was going to introduce them to ram business.
 
Ibrahim told newsmen he had taken part in a robbery operation, while Agboola said police came to arrest him at a tea joint where he was waiting for Ibrahim and other members of the gang who allegedly went for the operation.
 
Agboola told newsmen, “I did not partake in the operation. I was waiting for Ibrahim and others at a tea joint as the two Okada (commercial motorcycle) used could not carry me along with them.

“The police came to pick me where I was waiting at the tea joint after Ibrahim and others had been arrested.”
 
Spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, DSP Gambo Isah, confirmed the development, adding that investigation was still going on.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
