Suspected bandit’s corpse discovered in uncompleted building



From JOHN FWAH, Kaduna

THE dead body of an alleged bandit has been discovered in an unfinished building at Kurutu village in Kaduna State’s Kachia Local Government Area.

Troops had raided the bandits’ hideout at Kurutu forest which led to the killing of three of them while several others fled in different directions following a heavy gun battle, recently.

A community leader who pleaded anonymity told reporters that the corpse was found on Tuesday at an uncompleted building at the back of the village.

He said, “It was one of the villagers who discovered the corpse that came to inform me, and I personally joined some residents in the uncompleted building, where the corpse was found.”

The community leader disclosed that the suspected bandits’ corpse was later set ablaze by an angry mob, adding that it was riddled with bullets.

“Actually, when I visited the scene, I noticed that the corpse was riddled with bullet wounds, so I suspected that he might have sustained injuries during the exchange of fire with troops,” he added.

The spokesperson of the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Hassan Mansur, was yet to confirm the incident at the time of filing this report.
