The Kogi State police command has arrested two politicians said to be involved in the Deeper Life Bible Church attacks at Otite.
The state’s commissioner of Police, Mohammadu Katsina, on Thursday said the command has identified the perpetrators of the attack which killed 20 people during a church service.
Both politicians arrested are former local government chairmen in the state. One of them, Alhaji Yahaya Kuraku, was the former local government chairman of Okene LGA and presently a special adviser to the governor of the state, Idris Wada. The other suspect arrested was the chairman of Okehi LGA.
Katsina had indicated on Wednesday that the attack was unconnected to the Boko Haram militant group who are known for perpetuating violent acts similar to the Deeper Life Church attack.
Reports indicate that the two former local government chairmen have been taken to Abuja for further interrogation.
Mohammadu Katsina assured that the police is prepared to unravel the reasons behind the attack and bring all those involved in the crime to book.
