Its Public Relations Officer, Mr Mansir Hassan, told newsmen in Kaduna on Saturday that detectives, acting on credible information, arrested Basiru Rabiu, one of the suspects, at the Sabon Gari area of Hunkuyi Local Government Area.

The statement indicated that his movements around the Mosque appeared suspicious and he was arrested.

“Rabi’u said that he sold the stolen items to one Mansir Umar who we also promptly arrested.

“Some other exhibits were recovered and investigation is ongoing.

“The suspects will be charged to court upon completion of investigation,” Hassan said.
