According to Amaraizu, the suspects specialised 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 the recovery of dead and decomposed bundles of meat which they usually sell to their unsuspecting members of the public,’’ he said.
The police spokesman said that the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Ahmad Abdulrahman has directed full scale investigations in relation to the alleged nefarious activities of the suspects.
