His wife tried in vain to get her husband to return the shoes, but when he refused, she reported him to the Police.
Abba claimed he picked the shoes on the road in the market and thought it was lost property.
Other looted items include power generators, clothing materials, wall clocks, cartons of spaghetti, bags of Semovita flour, cartons of milk, plastics, carpets.
“We have reports that some people are still in possession of such looted items, particularly within Katsina metropolis.”
The Police, however, appealed to residents to report such hoodlums to the nearest station for necessary action.
All the suspects in custody would soon be charged to court.
