Men with maimed morals steal N1.7m hospital’s microscope, sell it for N5,000 in Kastina – Northern City News
Operatives of the Kastina State Police Command have arrested a 30-year-old man, Hamza Sani, for allegedly conspiring with four others to steal a microscope belonging to the Malumfashi General Hospital, in the Malunfashi area of the state.
Sani was said to have sold the stolen diagnostic facility valued at N1.7m for a paltry N5,000.
Security source revealed that Sani’s arrest led to the apprehension of his cohorts, identified as Magaji Yusuf 36; Saidu Shehu 40; Kamala Aliyu 33; and Emmanuel Ukelere, 48.
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Gambo Isah, while confirming the incident, said Sani and his cohorts specialised in the stealing of hospital equipment, adding that during interrogation, Sani confessed to the crime.
Sani, who was paraded at the Katsina Police Command Headquarters, told Newsmen that he sold the microscope for N5,000 because he needed money to treat his sick wife.
Sani is indeed a man with maimed morals, a husband without attitude, an unpatriotic and uncritical thinking citizen. What if his wife would require laboratory investigations using the same diagnostic facility he has stollen and sold for a miserable amount?
