3 major suspects in connection to Zamfara brutal killings arrested

Zamfara State Police Command is somehow getting to the root of a brutal killing perpetrated by some unknown gunmen on last week Wednesday, where 36 people were purportedly massacred in cold blood, as 3 major suspects in connection to the killings were arrested.

This incident that took place in Birane village in Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State called the attention of federal government of Nigeria to act swiftly in order to get to the root and bring the guilty suspects to book.

However, the Police Command in Zamfara admitted that 18 persons died in the attack, which appears to be a reprisal against the villagers for intercepting a suspected cattle rustler.

President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to relocate to the restive state to assess the security breach and this has achieved immediate success.

The Nigerian police has announced the arrest of 3 major suspects responsible for the gruesome Zamfara killings. Below is a statement obtained by PoliticsNGR, signed by force PRO, Jimoh Moshood;


i. Halilu Garba (Alias Mabushi) ‘M’ 45 yrs

ii. Zubairu Marafa (Alias Wakili) ‘M’ 45yrs

iii. Nafi’u Badamasi (Alias Zakiru) ‘M’ 40yrs

The above mentioned three (3) principal suspects have been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force for participating in the recent Zamfara Killings. The suspects who are now in Police custody are assisting the Police in the investigation into the Crime.

Further findings follows and all suspects would be arraigned in court as soon as the investigation is brought to conclusion.
