Mohammed Abubakar, the Inspector-General of Police has set up a high-powered team of investigators to unmask the perpetrators of Tuesday’s bomb attacks in Kaduna which killed up to 82 people.
The attack which targeted a former Head of State, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari and an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, also injured more than 37 others.
Police spokesman, Frank Mba, announced in Abuja on Friday that the team of investigators, which is expected to collaborate with other security agencies, is headed by the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Legal Department, DCP Nwodibo Ekechukwu.
Other team members include, DCPs Chris Ezike of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Dan Mallam of the Monitoring Unit and Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi of the Interpol Unit.
Meanwhile, on the orders of the IG, security in other states has been increased particularly in areas that are more vulnerable to terror attacks.
“While appealing to all Nigerians, particularly Kaduna residents to remain calm, the IG called on the citizens to cooperate with the security agencies by providing them with relevant information to solve the crime,” Mba added.
