The police in Zamfara State have arrested some persons in connection
with the murder of Hajiya Hadiza ?Yarauta, a chieftain of the All
Progressives Congress (APC) in Talata Mafara.

The Public Relations Officer of the Zamfara Police Command, Mr Lawal
Abdullahi, told the Newsmen in Gusau that unknown persons attacked her
with sticks on March 29 which led to her death.

The police spokesman said that those arrested were currently helping
the police in their investigations and those found wanting would be
taken to court.

The party?s ward primaries were held last week in the state, with
crises reported in some local governments, particularly in Gusau,
Zurmi, Talata-Mafara, Bukkuyum, Bungudu and Gummi.

?Yarauta was elected as the women leader in her ward, Morai, on the
day she was attacked.
