Badeh: Police Postpone Presentation Of Suspects



The Nigeria Police Force has announced the postponement of the planned parading of the suspected killers of late former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh to journalists.

Naija News recalls that the force had on Wednesday said it had arrested alleged killers of Baden which it planned to present to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.

Badeh was called on the 18th of December while returning from his farm along the Keffi-Abuja road.

Acting DCP Jimoh Moshood, the spokesperson of the force, made this development known, while, addressing newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, said five suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in the crime.

Moshood  said the postponement was necessary to prevent other members of the gang from escaping.

“It is of significant to note that the presentation of the two suspects and the three other gang members will not come up today so as not to jeopardise the ongoing investigation,” he said.

He said: “The two suspects arrested actively participated in the killing of the former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh,”he said.

Moshood said that the Inspector-General of Police had directed the Police Joint Investigation Team to arrest those responsible for the killing.

He added that the suspects were cooperating with the police in the investigation of the matter.

“The public should also know that the investigation into the killing is being intensified to arrest other suspects who are still at large”.

“The 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,” the spokesman said.

He said that the suspects would be presented to the media and the public upon the completion of investigation into the matter.
