Police in Bayelsa State have arrested 31-year-old Isa Mohammed on Tombia Road, Yenagoa, for killing three vultures.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Asuquo Amba, said this while parading suspects recently arrested for various crimes in the state.
He said the suspect used to kill, roast and sell vultures to members of the public for consumption.
Amba said the suspect confessed to killing and taking the vultures to Kano for sale and for medical purposes.
“The suspect claimed that he is a member of the Kano State zoological office. Preliminary investigation revealed that this is the second time he will be killing vultures in Bayelsa State.
“He has been charged to court for conduct likely to cause breach of the peace,’’ he added.
