Melaye’s Gunrunning Case: Kogi Police rearrests 3 of 6 Escaped Suspects
The Kogi State Police Command has announced the rearrest of 3 of the 6 suspects who escaped police custody on Wednesday, Punch reports.
6 suspects had escaped from the Kogi State Police Custody, including 2 who had named Dino Melaye and Mohammed Audu as their gun suppliers.
The Kogi state police command has confirmed the re-arrest of three out of the six suspects involved in the arms case against Senator Dino Melaye who escaped from custody on Wednesday.
The outgoing state commissioner of police, Ali Janga, who confirmed this, however, did not disclose the names of the arrested suspects.
“Yes, it is confirmed, but note that I am no longer the CP, I have been removed, so next time talk to the new CP, ” he said.
Our correspondent in Lokoja learnt that the suspects were re-arrested earlier today at an undisclosed location.
It was gathered that two of the suspects sustained gun shot wounds when they attempted to flee from the police.
They were said to be receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, as of the time of filling this report.
The police had quickly declared the suspects wanted, along with Melaye and Audu.
Melaye had also given the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris 48 hours to find and rearrest the escaped suspects.
The commissioner of police, Ali Janga, who had been removed, confirmed the rearrest to Punch, although he failed to mention if the 2 suspects connected to Melaye were among those rearrested.
