“We don’t know why the madman attacked and killed the old man. When the matter was reported at the police station, a team of policemen was sent to the area to arrest the lunatic.“As the policemen arrived at the scene, the madman also attacked and killed one of them with his machete. He injured four other people before running into a bush.”The source said attempts by the policemen to arrest the lunatic were not successful.“Each time the policemen wanted to arrest him, he disappeared and reappeared like it was a prank. He finally disappeared into the bush and escaped arrest,” the source added.
“We have arrested him. The CP led a team of policemen, some hunters and vigilance group members to arrest him in Tekunle village. He is in our custody.”
