The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Jigawa on Tuesday said it arrested a 30-year-old man (name withheld) for alleged theft of Indomie noodles.
The corps Commandant, Mr Muhammad Gidado, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse that the suspect was arrested in Shuwarin, Kiyawa Local Government Area, for allegedly stealing 3 cartons of the noodles and 2 crates of eggs.
He said the corps had been trailing the suspect as one of the alleged criminals terrorising shop owners in Dutse and its environs for a long period.
