Mr. Ibrahim Idris, acting Inspector-General of Police, (Ag.IGP) on Thursday, directed Mr. Joshack Habilla, Deputy-Inspector-General of Police (DIG) in charge operations, to proceed to Plateau State with immediate effect to ensure the arrest of the killers of Chief Lazarus Agaie, the traditional ruler of Bokkos, who was murdered on his way from a farm alongside his wife, son and Police orderly.

Mr. Idris said that the DIG Operations was ordered to proceed to Plateau state to ensure that  those behind the gruesome murder of the monarch are fished out in record time for prosecution.

The directive was contained in a release signed by Mr. Don Awunah, the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO).

Awunah, a deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) said in the release signed on behalf of the Ag. IGP that it was pathetic to see the life of any Nigerian, irrespective of his or her status snuffed out by any criminal gang in whatever name.

The release said that “the death of the monarch, his family and orderly were particularly painful, but more painful when we take to reprisal attacks; he therefore advised the aggrieved to be patients with the Police in their investigation into the murder of the monarch.”

Mr. Idris said that “the Nigeria Police will leave no stone unturned in arresting the culprits, but need the collaboration of everyone with useful information, without over heating the already tensed insecurity challenges the country is going through,” and assured that the Nigeria Police under his watch will ensure decency in the polity.
