Following the recent massacre in communities in Bakkos, Barkin-Ladi and Mangu Local Government Areas of Plateau State, eight suspected persons have been arrested and kept in police custody.

DAILY POST reports that the onslaughts claimed the lives of about 200 persons.

The police spokesperson in the state, Alfred Alabo said this on Thursday, adding that the suspects were arrested at various locations.


“We have been getting tremendous success from that process,” the Plateau police spokesman said.

“It would also interest you to know that seven persons, in fact as of the last count, there are now eight of them under investigation in our custody and they have been moved to the state CID where the AIG Zone 4 and the commissioner of police are overseeing the affairs of the operation and also the investigation.”

Recall that Vice President Kashim Shettima had visited the area to commiserate with the people of the North-Central State.

During the visit, the VP appealed to the residents to “resist the temptation to succumb to sectional divisions or the poisonous rhetoric of hatred towards fellow citizens, as we pursue justice to ensure your security”.
