Suspected Cult boys arrested for amputating 21-year-old man’s hand in Bauchi

On Wednesday, the police in Bauchi State reported that they had detained some thugs (Sara Suka) in the city of Bauchi in advance of the Sallah celebration this year.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Ahmed Mohammed Wakil in the state announced the arrest of the thugs.

In a press release he signed and provided to newsmen in Bauchi, the police reaffirmed their readiness to carry out their constitutional obligations to uphold law and order, provide adequate security for people and property, prevent and identify crimes, and enforce the law to maintain civil order.

Wakil, a Superintendent of Police (SP), claimed that three teenagers who had amputated his right hand at the age of 21 were among the thugs who had been detained.

“The command received a complaint from one Sadiq Bala ‘m’ aged 21yrs, a victim of Sara-suka who was later invited for an identification parade and he vividly identified one Ibrahim Musa ‘m’ aged 18yrs, Buhari Ahmad ‘m’ aged 18yrs and Abba Usman ‘m’ aged 18yrs to be amongst the thugs that amputated his right hand,” Wakil stated.

The three teenagers, the police spokesman stated, were among those arrested Tuesday last week by operatives of the command’s Operation Restore Peace (ORP) at Mallan Goje, Nasarawa, and Karofi areas of the state capital.
