IGP dispatches DIG operations to fish out Plateau monarch’s killers

By Wahab Akanji, Abuja 

The Inspector-General of Police, Ag.IGP Ibrahim Idris has directed the Deputy Inspector General (DIG), in charge of operations, Joshack Habilla to proceed to Plateau state and fish out those responsible for the murder of Chief Lazarus Agaie. 

Chief Agaie who was the traditional ruler of Bokkos, was murdered on his way from a farm alongside his wife, son and police orderly. 

The IGP in a statement in Abuja on Thursday by the Force Spokesperson, Don Awunah, assured that those behind the gruesome murder of the monarch will be fished out in record time for prosecution. 

He also said it is pathetic to see the life of any Nigerian, irrespective of his or her status snuffed out by any criminal gang in whatever name. 

The police chief while urging the aggrieved to be patient with the police in their investigation into the murder of the monarch stated: “the death of the monarch, his family and orderly are particularly painful, but it is more painful when we take to reprisal attacks. 

The IGP who urged members of the public with useful information to come forward without overheating the already tensed insecurity challenges the country is going through added that  the Force will leave no stone unturned in arresting the culprits. 

He further said that he would ensure that the Force under his watch ensure decency in the polity.
