Meanwhile, a corpse of the herder whose name is revealed as Yau Ibrahim was discovered in the bush on Christmas Day by a group of police personnel deployed to the village by the police command.
Ibrahim is said to have gone out on the day to graze his cattle when he was killed by yet to be known assailants.
