Yenagoa –   The Police Command in Bayelsa says it has arrested three suspects linked to Dec. 2 assassination of a prominent cattle dealer, Alhaji Jibril Abdulkarim and three others.

The Police Commissioner in the state Mr Asuquo Amba made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenogoa on Monday.

Amba said that the suspects were being profiled while their telephone communication was also being scrutinised.

“We have so far taken three suspects into custody and we are profiling them and their communication.

“We are looking at their phone communications and from facts before us, it is an assassination done on close range and the people must have been known to them.

“We are equally looking at the leadership issues and election of the Fulanis.

“We are following the clues we have and I am hopeful we shall be able to have a breakthrough,” Amba said.

NAN recalls that the cattle dealer and three of his aides were shot dead at his private abattoir in Yenagoa on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Abdulkarim was a member of the Bayelsa Committee for the Management and Control of Ranches, and Chairman, Cattle Breeders Association (CBA) in the state.

The Bayelsa government had on Sunday tasked the Police and security agencies to fish out the culprits.

The government pledged to collaborate with the security agencies to ensure that those behind the heinous act were arrested and brought to book. (NAN)
