The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has instituted a high-powered investigation team made up of seasoned investigators to unearth the perpetrators of Tuesday bomb attacks in Kaduna in which 82 Nigerians lost their lives.
The attack which targeted a former Head of State, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari and an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, also injured more than 37 others.
A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, in Abuja on Friday, explained that the team of investigators, which is expected to work in close collaboration with other security agencies, is headed by the Commissioner of Police in charge of Legal Department, DCP Nwodibo Ekechukwu.
Other members of the team include, DCPs Chris Ezike of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Dan Mallam of the Monitoring Unit and Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi of the Interpol Unit and others.
Meanwhile, on the orders of the IG, security has been tightened in all states of the federation, particularly in the states perceived to be more vulnerable to terror attacks.
“While appealing to all Nigerians, particularly Kaduna residents to remain calm, the IG called on the citizens to cooperate with the security agencies by providing them with relevant information to solve the crime,” the statement added. [myad]
