Police say the owner of the block factory, Mohammed Salifu popularly known as UN, is in police custody after he was arrested on a land litigation issue three days ago.

However, it is unclear the rationale for which the suspect committed the arson.

In an interview with Adom News the brothers of the owner said the suspect tried to shoot the security man before setting the machines ablaze and destroying the blocks.

Meanwhile, the watchman Fatawu Abubakar revealed that the suspects came with tyres and tried to burn him too.

The Millennium Police confirmed the arrest but are yet to publicly comment on the issue.
