We have arrested five individuals who are linked to growth. We’ll arrest more yet. We had an idea that it was a group of alleged cultists who are working hard to get guns that are coming up very soon for their initiation. So, we’ll get all of those involved in this dastardly act in four days at most,’ Akande said.

Speaking further, Akande said that some of the arms taken on the spot had been retrieved by the police.

He also disclosed that the checkpoint that was targeted was not known to the command headquarters of the State Police.

His words were: “If it were known to us, we would have found a way to cover it up.” The checkpoint is not an arrangement of this Command. You will see if you were there that they were in the mufti.

We will get all our weapons back by God’s Grace. It’s just the lives we’re not going to get back. We have to tell the family first about the names of the officers before making the names public.

Our spirit is not dampened, I want to assure you. In fact, after the incident, we will continue to work very hard,” Akande said.
