The Niger State police command said on Tuesday that it had arrested two suspected killers of one Terna Cletus in the Tafa Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects, Osita Chinemerem, a student of Dorben Polytechnic, and Maleh Lucky, were picked up by police operatives attached to the Tafa division.
It was gathered that the operatives acted on the information that one Cletus, from Benue State State living in the Tafa LGA of Niger State was found dead with injuries on his neck.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Babalola Adewole, confirmed the arrest of the suspects, saying operatives recovered a cutlass believed to be the murder weapon, a T-shirt and one rubber toy pistol from the suspects.
Adewole said, “The Niger State police command has declared war on crimes in the state; we urge the people to report any suspicious person to the nearest police station.
“And for the criminals, they have no hiding place in the state because the law will catch up with them and they will be decisively dealt with.”
He added that the matter had been concluded and charged to court.
