IGP orders arrest of plateau monarch killers

21 July 2016, 16:27

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has deployed the Deputy-Inspector-General of Police in charge operations, Joshack Habilla, to Plateau State with immediate effect to ensure the arrest of the killers of Lazarus Agaie, the traditional ruler of Bokkos.

He has been murdered on his way from a farm alongside his wife, son and  a police orderly.

Idris said those behind the murder of the monarch would be fished out in record time for prosecution.

“This is why the Deputy Inspector-General of Police is sent to Plateau State,” said Idris.

He further said it was “pathetic” to see the life of any Nigerian, irrespective of his or her status snuffed out by any criminal gang in whatever name.

said the death of the monarch, his family and orderly were particularly painful, but more painful when we take to reprisal attacks.

Idris thus advised the aggrieved to be patient with the police in their investigation into the murder of the monarch.

He said the police would leave no stone unturned in arresting the culprits, but need the collaboration of everyone with useful information, without over heating the already tensed insecurity challenges the country is going through.

Idris assured Nigerians police under his watch would ensure decency in the polity.
