The Nigeria Police Force has arrested 22 persons suspected to be directly involved in the killing of innocent people at Kasuwar Magani in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood, disclosed this while addressing a news conference in Abuja.

“Twenty-two suspects directly involved in the killing of these innocent people have been arrested and they are now in police custody, and they have been assisting the police further in the investigation into the incident,” he said.

Mr Moshood said normalcy has been restored to the area while some prominent personalities kidnapped during the incident have been rescued.

He condoled with the families of the victims on behalf of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris.

“The IGP condemns in entirety the attack and killings of innocent people, calls for calm as the police special investigation team has made a significant progress in the investigation into the attack and the killing of innocent people,” he said.

Meanwhile, the police boss has deployed the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 7 Headquarters in charge of Kaduna and Niger states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to lead the Police Special Intervention Force already on the ground at Kasuwar Magani.

The team comprises operatives of Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit, Conventional Policemen, Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), and Intelligence Response Team (IRT) among others.

The police spokesman revealed that the team would embark on operations that would cover the entire Kasuwar Magani and environs, as well as other trouble spots in the state.
