According to Mr Amaraizu, the suspects specialise in scouting for
dead animals that are decomposed and selling them to unsuspecting
members of the public with the connivance of cold room stores operators.
“The suspects who are currently undergoing investigation were nabbed based on intelligence information.
“Their subsequent arrest also led to recovery of dead and decomposed
bundles of meat which they usually sell to their unsuspecting members of
the public,’’ he said.
The police spokesperson said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmad
Abdulrahman, has directed full-scale investigations in relation to the
alleged nefarious activities of the suspects.
“The suspects are currently helping police operatives in their investigation,’’ he said.
