Speaking from his hospital bed on Wednesday, the arms amputation victim, Muhammad, said the suspects who he was able to identify, met him and his murdered colleague around 2am where they were working and decided to pass the night. “On arrival, they accused Papa who was an ex-vigilante member, of involvement in the killing of their late colleague, Adamu Zakari, and when they discovered that I recognised them, they stabbed me on the stomach and amputated my arms. They never expected that I would survive when they fled the scene,” he said. The Zuba Divisional Police Officer (DPO) CSP Muhammad Yahaya, who confirmed the incident, added that the case of the other murdered person which was linked to this, was reported to the Sabon Wuse police division under Niger State Command.
