About a month
after shocking killings erupted in Benue State on New Year’s day, the
State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, has said that 24
suspects have been arrested with 19 arraigned in court in connection
with the incident.

 
Owoseni
stated this on Thursday during a telephone interview on Channels
Television’s Sunrise Daily where he vowed to ensure that justice would
take its course to serve as a deterrent to others.
“A
total number of 24 suspects that have been arrested in connection with
some of these cases which borders on culpable homicide, grievous hurt,
and mischief by fire, the total number is 24. The number that have been
arraigned in court are 19 while five of the cases are still being
investigated,” he said.
The CP said there would be no sacred cow in the fight against crime.
He also promised to completely eliminate criminals as all those found guilty will be made to face the full weight of the law.
He,
however, noted that the state is currently enjoying relative peace due
to the collaborative efforts of the police and the public.
The
police boss, until his assuming duties last month as the police boss in
the state, was in charge of Administration at the Force Criminal
Intelligence and Investigation Department (FCIID) at the Force
Headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s capital. (Channels TV)
