Police arrest suspect with human part

A suspect with a severed human hand has been arrested in Zurmi local government area, according to Zamfara police.

SP Mohammed Shehu, the spokesperson, said in a statement on Monday that the suspect was apprehended by joint Police and Military Operatives on an anti-banditry operation along the Dauran-Zurmi axis.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect was a member of the outlawed group (Yansakai), which he alleged was terrorising members of the Dauran community by enforcing jungle justice.

He stated the suspect confessed that he and the other three members of his gang, who are still at large, killed one Abdullah and severed his right hand post mortem.

SP Shehu stated that an operation has been initiated to apprehend the remaining suspects.
