A statement signed by the Command’s Spokesperson, SP Mohammed Shehu, said that the suspect was arrested by the Joint Police and Military Operatives on Anti–Banditry Operation along Dauran – Zurmi axis and brought to the Police Command Headquarters, Gusau for discreet investigation.

Shehu said a discreet investigation on the culpable homicide of one Abdullah, a Fulani and possession of a human body part is currently being carried out by the police on the suspect and his gang members, who are currently at large.

He added that the outlawed YANSAKAI group has been terrorizing Dauran community through jungle justice, which has provoked reprisal attacks by terrorists on the innocent dwellers of the community.
