Jos – The Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) on Wednesday paraded 17 suspects allegedly connected to the multiple attacks which took place in Plateau State leaving more than 100 people dead and many more wounded.
Parading the suspects at the OPSH headquarters Jos, Media Officer of the command, Major Adam Umar said, “These suspects we are parading here are suspects arrested in connection to the last Saturday attack in Barkin Ladi local government of Plateau state on the 23rd of June, 2018.
“The suspects are in two categories; three of the suspects were in connection to the attack in Barkin Ladi, and the other 14 suspects are those arrested from the scene of protest and blockage of federal highways to protest the attack in Barkin Ladi.
“It was in the course of repelling the attackers by our men that these three suspects were arrested. When they saw our men coming after them, they threw away their guns and ran into the bushes. But our men went after them and threatened to shoot them if they did not surrender, that was how the three of them were arrested.
“And you know there was a civil disturbances that followed on 24th of June 2018 around Maraba Jamaa, Angludi and Bukuru axis, our men also stormed there to clear the roadblocks mounted by the protesters and these suspects participating in the civil disturbances were also arrested.

Asked whether the three suspected gunmen have confessed to the crime, Major Umar said, “No, we have not got to that level, the investigation is still on, this is a security matter, they are already giving us useful information that may lead us to arrest more suspects.”
Asked whether the suspected gunmen are Nigerians of foreigners, Major Umar said, “The three suspects that were arrested from the scene of attacks are Nigerians, they are not foreigners. The arms we arrested them with are also locally made guns including one AK-47 riffle. These suspects are not the only ones involved in the attacks, we are on the trail of others.
“We want to appeal to Nigerians to be patient and cooperative with us in our efforts to get the perpetrators of this killings, people should ignore rumors been circulated on the social media, we encourage the media to reach out to us and verify any rumor before they publish.”

the army arrested 14 indigenes demonstrators? why arrest them and parade them? and only a fool believes that the herdsmen were arrested, why weren't they paraded before now? not even an announcement of their arrest? this is just a cover up because the masses are heavily criticizing the army on the mass media.
