Police arrest man who killed 5 persons in Kwara State

The murderer, whose name has not been revealed, committed the act along with members of his gang.

Four suspected cultists were caught following a raid by the police.

The development was confirmed by Mr Olusola Amore, the Commissioner of Police in the state, who revealed that the suspect committed the offence in company of his friends.

He made this known on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.

“It was reported recently that five people were killed in Tsaragi. Well we have been able to arrest the ring leader of that dastardly act."

"We also recovered all the guns they used. Five others are on the run but we have the ring leader with us."

“The person arrested is from Share community. He felt that he was wronged by the killing of his brother and destruction of their property during the December clash between them and the people of Tsaragi."

“He alone called for his friends and went on the revenge mission. They were never backed by the community and that is why you notice it happened when there was no disagreement between the two communities.”

The killing of the victims, Aliyu Issah, Muhmini, Alhaji Saba, Madu Issa and Kadiri, reportedly led to serious tensions among members of the community where the incident occurred.
