Information Nigeria has learnt of the arrest of one of the suspected killers that wiped out a family of seven in Southern Kaduna in the wee hours of Friday, January 31st.

According to eyewitnesses, the suspect was nabbed by an irate group of youths of Southern Kaduna origin, who went into a nearby forest searching for herdsmen they believed were involved in the grisly attack, which has been condemned by the Northern States Governors Forum.

Recall that some gunmen, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen had invaded Manyi Akuru village, near Manchok, Kaura Local Government of Kaduna State and reportedly wiped out a family of seven before fleeing into the bush.

Citing a senior military officer in charge of security situated in Southern Kaduna, who confirmed the capture of the suspect, SaharaReporters said the irate youths saw the suspected killers and gave them a hot chase somewhere between Kaduna and Plateau states borders, after which one of them was captured, and another reportedly killed.

A traditional local ruler whose son volunteered a photograph of the captured suspect said he made a useful confession to carrying out the killings.

The suspect, according to the officer and local ruler, was later handed over to the security agencies patrolling the area, and subsequently transferred to Kaduna for further questioning as part of an ongoing investigation.

The traditional ruler, who pleaded anonymity, offered some details on the killings and capture of the suspect.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that the family of seven were buried in Southern Kaduna on Saturday afternoon, 1st of February 2014.
