NASARAWA MASSACRE: Arrested Policemen Still Under Investigation – IG

The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Abubakar, weekend in Lagos, described the arrest of some policemen in alleged connection with the killings of policemen two weeks ago, by members of the Ombatse cult group in Alayko village, Nassarawa state, as mere allegation, until ongoing investigation proved otherwise.

This came as President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed satisfaction over the ongoing renovation of the Police College, Ikeja.

The renovation work is expected to be completed in two weeks and handed over to the Nigeria Police.

The IG who was on a visit to the Police College Ikeja, to inspect the level of ongoing renovation work, said so far, it had not been proven that the policemen gave information to the cultists, assuring that if there was concrete proof to that effect, the Force would not hesitate to expose the men to the world.

“It is still an allegation. And as a security agency, when one thinks someone has done something against the law, we question him. In this case, it has not been proven that they gave any information to anybody. We are still investigating that. And if we have concrete proof that he has done it, we will tell the world. Until we have proved that he has done it, it is assumed an allegation.”

Meanwhile renovation of the Police College Ikeja, Lagos will be completed in two weeks. This was disclosed by the Commander, Army Corps Engineers, Major-General Funso Owonibi during an inspection visit by President Goodluck Jonathan and the Inspector-General of Police, weekend.

During the inspection, Major General Owonibi, informed that the renovation of the 35 buildings was 95% completed.

The Corp, he said, was given a marching order on February 8, 2013, by the president, following the revelation of its dilapidated state.
