Abuja - Suleiman Abba, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 7, says the police have evidences that will give clues to those responsible for the Nyanya Motor Park explosion.
The Zone 7 comprises FCT, Niger and Kaduna.
Abba said this on Wednesday in Abuja at a news conference.
The AIG, however, said that no arrest had been made connecting to the incident.
"Arrest, I am not aware of any arrest yet but links, yes; there are evidences that we hope will link us to those responsible for this crime.
"But I cannot disclose these links yet because the whole purpose is for the links to achieve the purpose for which we got them,’’ he said.
Abba said that a team of highly experienced investigators, formed by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar to probe the incident, had begun work.
He said in no distant time, the public would know those behind the bombing and stated that they would be prosecuted when arrested.
Abba said that the police high command met after the incident and re-examined its strategies, to fashion out a better approach to deal with crime in the territory.
He gave residents the assurance that everything was being done to avoid a recurrence.
"I will not say all the strategies we have pencilled down but let me mention that we will certainly strengthen our partnership with the public.
'It is going to be a partnership where we will strategise together to solve the problems of crime, a partnership where we would share logistics.
"If you look at that incident, you will see that the logistics to prevent that vehicle from entering that place (motor park) was there,’’ he said.
According to him, the utilisation was poor and the enemy cashed in on that, adding that the proposed partnership would lead to better management of crisis in the FCT.
Abba gave assurance that a highly visible policing would be provided in the territory to detect and prevent crime and called on the public not to hesitate to give useful information to the police.
Responding to a question, Abba said that majority of the CCTVs security cameras in the territory were functional and that the intelligence arm of the police was being strengthened for better performance.
The April 14 explosion occurred at about 6.55a.m. and claimed 72 lives, with more than 120 people sustaining various injuries.
