Police in Delta State have arrested three persons at Umuseti community, Ndokwa West Local Government Area in connection with the murder of a herdsman, Haruna Mohammed.
Haruna was reportedly shot dead at Emu-Ebendo community in the council area on December 22, 2016 by cattle rustlers, who dumped his body in a fish pond.
It will be recalled that the assailants also slaughtered two cows belonging to the herdsman behind an uncompleted petrol station in the community.
Confirming the arrest yesterday, Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Andrew Aniamaka, said the suspects were apprehended at Umuseti “after a sustained intelligence gathering” by a combined team of the police at Abbi Division and men of the local vigilante team.
“The case is under investigation and as soon as we are through, the suspects would be arraigned in court,” he added.
