Following the horrific incident where a seminarian and other villagers were killed by Fulani herdsmen in Nkanu LGA of Enugu State on Thursday 25 August 2016, the Enugu State Police Command says it has arrested one of the masterminds of the attack.
Public relations officer Ebere Amaraizu told newsmen today that:
“Nigeria police force in its resolve towards unmasking those behind the dastardly act perpetrated at Ndiagu Attakwu community of Akegbeugwu in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu state in the early hours of 25/8/16, which left one person dead and four others critically injured, have nabbed a suspect identified as one Umaru Isah from Gusau Zamfara State over his alleged involvement in the incident.
“His arrest came through intelligence information gathered. The said suspect, who claimed that he is 20 years old, revealed that he came in from Gusau Zamfara State to Enugu recently for the purposes of rearing cattle, but has none to rear till now.”
Kudos to the Force (if they truly arrested a suspect actually related to the crime).
