The IGP, in a statement issued Monday in Abuja  explained that findings have shown that the victims were not armed robbers but had gone to the area where they met their unfortunate death to demand for money allegedly owed to them by one Coxson Lelebori Lucky, alias ‘Bright’, who raised a false alarm that the victims were armed robbers.
The statement noted that Coxson has gone underground, even as it  stressed that detectives were on his trail. “Intelligence report also implicated Alhaji Hassan Welewa, as being the person who incited the mob to unleash terror on the victims.
Further investigation conducted by the police indicates that four (4) suspects, namely: Felemo Solomon; Cynthia Chinwo; Ozioma Abajuo and Chigozie Samuel Evans have been closely linked to this barbarous act. Investigation is ongoing with efforts being intensified to track down others who are involved in the incident. Those who are found culpable shall be prosecuted”, the statement read.
