The Kogi State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of six suspects linked with the killing of one Mrs Salome Achejuh Abuh, at Ochadamu, Ofu Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, on Nov. 18.
Speaking with NAN on Monday, the spokesman for the command, DSP William Aya said that the suspects were brought in on Friday.
Aya said the police had started interrogating the suspects to determine their level of culpability in the death of the PDP women leader.
He stated that the public would be made aware of the outcome of the investigations as soon as it was completed.
Naija News recalls that Abuh, a former councillor and Women Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was set ablaze on Nov. 18 in her husband’s house at Ochadamu, by hoodlums.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Sunday called on the police to apprehend and prosecute the killers of Abu.
The president described Mrs Abuh’s killing as a “primitive behaviour” that should not be condoned.
Buhari said: “President Muhammadu Buhari expects scrupulous investigation into the heinous murder of Madam Achejuh Abuh, Women Leader of the People’s Democratic Party in Wada/Aro campaign council, in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
“The President decries whatever could spur anyone to take the life of another human being, particularly a woman, who was burnt to death in her home in the most gruesome manner.”
