Here they go again. “No stone will be unturned” as the IG sets up probe panel for Kaduna

by Mayowa Aboah


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.

  1. Thank God for saving the life of Gen Buhari & sheik Bauchi. But it baffles me & perhaps some other Nigerians why this particular attack has drawn such an unprecedented attention & speculation even to the extent of institution of an investigative panel. Is it because this attack is the first of its kind or is it because of the status of the personalities involved, Is it because America demanded so & if yes, does it mean that the life of countless Nigerians who have met their untimely death in the hands of Boko Haram before now is not worth investigating. I have no problem with investigations & inquiries but this one is diversionary & needless. If we suspect that someone or some persons wanted sheik Bauchi & Gen Buhari dead outside Boko Haram, they rode on the back of the ugly situation on the ground. What we really need now is quick urgent solution to end this abnormality called Boko Haram, The life of every Nigerian should matter, no just those who are in the high echelon of the society, for there is no parameter to measure the importance of one life above the other.
