Makama said the police had already swung into action by setting up a network for the arrest of the suspects and appealed to the public to volunteer information that would lead to their arrests.

“We have already visited the site; we are constructing our narrative with the purpose of narrowing down possible suspects before effecting arrests.

“The police cannot provide security for each person so, what we do is to improve the general security of the people by taking proactive steps to curb crime in the state,” he said.
