The incident which occurred at Unguwar Tumbu, Madalla, in Niger State saw Ishaku beaten to a coma and tied to an electric pole.
A resident said the suspect was caught while taking the ram away when he was accosted by some neighbours who raised an alarm.
It was the timely intervention of members of the vigilante group in the area that saved him from being lynched.
