He added that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has restated that the Force will not tolerate any further attack on its personnel or any citizen by any individual or group under any guise whatsoever.

 

He assured that law enforcement agents have gathered sufficient intelligence on the attackers and are closing up on scores of suspects already implicated in the attacks either directly or indirectly for financing, aiding, and abetting the criminals.

 

He insists that no murderer will go unpunished.
