the investigation into the killing is being intensified to arrest other
suspects who are still at large.
“It is of significant note and for the public to be aware that the
parade of the two suspects and the three other gang members will not
come up today so as not to jeopardize the ongoing investigation.
“While the suspects will be paraded before the media and the public
upon the completion of investigation into this matter, the Nigeria
Police Force will not relent and will leave no stone unturned in getting
to the root of the killing and bringing all perpetrators of this
heinous crime to justice.”
