Probe ongoing into police killings

04 June 2013, 09:00Emeka Adebanji

Abuja - The outcome of investigation into the killing of about 50 policemen by members of suspected cult group, Ombatse, in Nasarawa State will be made public at the appropriate time, senior officials said.

The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, said police were working hard to ensure that justice was done.

“Investigations are on-going and the outcome of the investigation will be revealed to Nigerians at the appropriate time. We cannot keep quiet as to allow anybody in this country, whether individual or group of persons, under whatever canopy they call themselves, to kill officers of the police and go free.

“There has never been speculation, we have always given the number out, that we lost 49 police officers,’’ he said.

He also commented on the closure of Wonderland Amusement Park and Amigo Supermarket in Abuja, after the co-owner was fingered as head of a terrorist group.

“There is nothing new; security is security. We will go ahead to take any measure that needs to be taken to ensure that Nigeria is safe and Nigerians are given safe and secured environment," said Abubakar.
