The Kaduna state police command on Monday said three suspects who allegedly killed two Fulani herdsmen in southern Kaduna have been arrested.

Agyole Abeh, commissioner of police, told journalists in Kaduna that the deceased were grazing their livestock when they were killed at Unguwan Luka in Jema’a local government area on Saturday.

He said the three suspects were arrested after a tip-off by good samaritans. Abeh added that the suspects had made confessional statements and would soon be charged to court. He further declared that peace was gradually returning to southern Kaduna, and urged the public to go about their normal businesses.

Abeh also assured the people of the command’s readiness and commitment in providing secure environment, soliciting for more support from the public to enable police personnel discharge their duties effectively.

“I want to assure the people of the state of my resolve to flush out all forms of crime and criminality in the area,” Abeh said.
