The Edo State commissioner of police, Damallam Abubakar, on Friday, said the operatives of his command have arrested 13 suspects in connection with the killing of DPO and three other officers in Afuze police station.
He disclosed this in Benin City, Edo State while parading a total of 120 suspects arrested for various crimes ranging from kidnapping, cultism, armed robbery and murder.
Among the 120 suspects paraded by the police was an army deserter,Private Mbawa Lucky. He was paraded for cultism.
Damallam when asked to give much information about their arrest, said such details cannot be given at the moment until those who are at large are brought to book.
“On the 12 of March, 2019, where some unknown criminals, cowards who went to hide under cover of darkness, attacked Afuze Police station, killed the DPO and three others.
“If you recalled my press conference with the executive governor of Edo State, Governor Obaseki, I promised the public that we will do everything with the ambit of the law to detect and apprehend the criminals.
“We succeeded in the sense that we have 13 suspects under our custody.
“The reason i do not want to parade them, they are so well making useful information and I do not want anything that we jeopardize our investigations but we made arrest and they have confessed to have participated in the operation where they killed the DPO and the three others”, he said.
