The Zamfara State Police Command says it has arrested one Abubakar Namalika over the gruesome murder of Dr Enoch Okpara, a medical doctor in Gusau. 

Late Okpara who was a consultant Obstetrics/Gynaecologist working at the Federal Medical Centre in Gusau, was found dead at his residence in Mareri area of the state capital on Saturday, June 13. The remains of the deceased was found burnt beyond recognition after the church he worshipped in raised an alarm of him missing after not showing up for a program on Saturday morning, which was quite unusual.

The state Commissioner of Police, Usman Nagogo, who disclosed the arrest of the suspected killer to newsmen, said Abubakar had already confessed to the killing and had even given more information on other crimes that the command had commenced investigations on.

Nagogo explained that the suspect was arrested on Sunday by a team of Operation Puff Adder around 10 p.m. while he and some of his gang members now at large, were trying to commit another crime.

“During interrogation, the suspect who belong to the gang of a notorious criminal, Shehu Bagewaye, known as Shehu Gusami, informed the police of many other atrocities he committed including the killing of five innocent persons.

The suspect said he was also part of the gang that recently invaded Dogon kade village where they killed seven persons.

He revealed to us that they went to late Dr Enoch Okpara’s house to collect money from him at all cost, without which they were to kill the victim.

Namalika said when they could not get the money, they killed him and burnt the remains within the house where the doctor lived alone,” the CP explained.

The police commissioner said that the command was on the trail of the other four gang members that killed the medical doctor.
