Security agencies have arrested seven more suspects in connection with the recent killings of over 200 persons by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Barkin Ladi and Riyom LGAs of Plateau State.
The suspects were paraded on Tuesday at the headquarters of the Special Military Special Task Force, codenamed Operation Safe Haven, in Jos.
The acting Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen. John Agie, said, “Our troops are still after those who were involved in the attacks on June 23 and that led to the arrest of two suspects. After this parade, we are going to hand them over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.” Agie said a total of 18 suspects had been arrested.
