19 arrested over murder of 2 Gombe policemen

07 February 2013, 09:02

Gombe - The Commissioner of Police in Gombe State, Mr Mohammed Sule, said on Wednesday that 19 persons had been arrested in connection with the murder of two policemen last week.

The commissioner told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe that the two policemen were killed at a duty point near Gombe State Transport Corporation.

He said the suspects were arrested around motor parks after the killings and charged to court.

He said the command would not rest on its oars in efforts to eradicate criminals in the state.

According to Sule, the police are still investigating some incidents that led to the killings of some officers and civilians in the state.

He, however, charged police officers and men to always be on the alert while on duty to ensure their security.

He said the incident which led to the death of the officers was partly their fault.

Sule said the officers were gossiping when the killers attacked them.

“It is unprofessional for anybody to go and gossip while on duty because these hoodlums are watching.

“They are surveying but when you are alert, they will never go there.

“My message is that they must be professional in everything they do, they must be vigilant.

“They must adhere to the principles of the profession and I have decided to deal with anybody found wanting in this regard,’’ he said.

Commenting on the killing of two other persons, including a prison warden, he said a mobile telephone which was recovered at the scene of the incident had been sent for forensic analysis.
