9 arrested, corpses recovered in Zangon Kataf

Nine suspects have been arrested in connection with the recently reported attack on Kurmin Gandu village, Zangon Kataf local government area of Kaduna state.

This was revealed in operational feedback submitted to the Kaduna State Government by troops of Operation Safe Haven.

Daily Trust reports that armed bandits carried out an attack on the village late on Sunday, leaving five people dead.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the nine suspects were apprehended after continuous tracking by the troops. An assortment of weapons was recovered from the group.

The suspects have been handed over to the Police for further investigation.

In another development, the troops also reported the recovery of two corpses, apparently of herders, in the Mabuhu-Wawan Rafi general area of Zangon Kataf.

According to the report, the herders, identified as Yusuf Ahmadu and Mustapha Bako, had been missing, having gone out to graze their cattle, and then failed to return to their settlement.
