Dambazau Orders IG: Arrest Agatu killings perpetrators

The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, has directed the Inspector-General of Police and other heads of security agencies under the ministry to arrest the perpetrators of the killings in Agatu and other communities in Benue State.



The minister said the masterminds of the bloody attacks on innocent Nigerians in different communities in Benue State should be fished out and made to face justice.

A statement on Monday in Abuja by the Press Secretary to the minister, Osaigbovo Ehisienmen, said Dambazau had earlier directed the IG to carry out an on-the-spot assessment of the situation in the communities.



He stated that the perpetrators of the dastardly acts were testing the will and capabilities of the government.

While expressing his condolences to the government and people of Benue State over the reprehensible acts, the minister noted that to guarantee the security and welfare of the people, as enshrined in Section II, subsection (2b) of 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, remains the primary purpose of government.

“To this end, the nation’s Interior Minister has directed the Inspector-General of Police and other heads of security agencies under the ministry to synergise with other security services to speedily arrest this ugly tread and bring its perpetrators to justice,” the statement read.

Meanwhile, the Federal Fire Service said it would soon embark on an aggressive grassroots consumer sensitisation campaign, tagged, ‘Vehicle Fire Safety Campaign,’ aimed at educating the general public on the menace of fake and substandard fire extinguishers.

The Controller-General, Federal Fire Service,  Joseph Anebi, in a statement, explained that the agency decided to embark on a public enlightenment campaign, aimed at effectively controlling indiscriminate importation and sales of fake and substandard fire extinguishers in Nigeria, due to pervasive ignorance of the general public and motorists in particular.

Anebi noted that inadequate enlightenment campaign had increased the incidences of fire outbreaks across the country.
