The Bayelsa Police Command on Monday said it had arrested four suspected killers of a police officer attached to Anti-terrorism Unit in the state.
The Bayelsa Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, told journalists in Yenagoa that a 24-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with armed robbery and murder of Corporal Sammy Saturday who was killed at Tombia roundabout, Yenagoa in October.
He said: “The suspect led police to arrest other members of the gang who confessed how the police officer was killed.
“They confessed to be members of Greenland Confraternity, investigation is ongoing,” he said.
The police commissioner said that the command had also arrested two men suspected to have allegedly killed a 16-year-old undergraduate in Bayelsa, Miss Seiyefa Fred.
He said most of the crimes were cult and illicit drug-related.
Makan called on the residents to cooperate and assist the command in its efforts at ensuring peace, security and safety of lives and property in the state. (NAN)
