A statement from the Zamfara Police Command on Monday gave the suspect’s name as Jabiru Ibrahim from Dauran district in the Zarmi council area of the state.
The police command spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, said in the statement 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.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect was among the members of the outlawed group (YANSAKAI) who have been terrorising members of Dauran community through jungle justice, leading to reprisal attacks by bandits against the innocent members of the public.
He said further investigations are ongoing with a view to nabbing his partners and also unravel the circumstances behind their actions before they are charged to court.
