The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali, announced the arrest of suspects allegedly involved in the attack on Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom.
The IGP on Thursday announced this at a special briefing of State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
TOS News reported how Ortom, in March, stated that gunmen suspected to be herders attacked him on his farm near Tyo-mu, along Makurdi-Gboko Highway of Benue State.
The police boss announced the arrest of 10 suspects.
“Those who organised and those who pulled the trigger have all been arrested and investigation is ongoing,” he said.
He said investigations so far show that the outcome is contrary to the claims made by the governor.
