Fight against large scale banditry: two alleged criminals majoring in armed robbery nabbed.
Following numerous complaints and reports about a dangerous gang of armed robbers attacking mobile money operator kiosks, elements of the Nkolbisson Gendarmerie Brigade raided the place called Caramba in the Nkolbisson neighborhood on 14 March 2024.

This operation led to the arrest of two individuals, namely a 17 year old secondary school student and a 26 year old university student, who were caught red handed preparing a robbery.

During their arrest, these suspects were in possession of an 7.65 MM MAB BREVET-SDGD model D automatic pistol with an empty french made magazine.

The first suspect is an habitual offender. He is suspected to have robbed an Orange Money kiosk on 10 December 2024 at Caramba in Nkolbisson and made away with 5 millions CFA F.

Both individuals will be referred to court in the coming days in order to be held accountable.

Investigation is going on with a view to arresting the other gang members.
