The police in Plateau on Monday said they have arrested three persons in Kapil village of Chip District in Pankshin Local Government Area over alleged killing of a 26-year-old man, Mr Chinme Daniel.

Mr Tyeopev Terna, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the Police Command in the state, confirmed the arrest of the suspects in Jos.

The command’s image maker said the arrest of the suspects, whose names remained withheld, followed a complaint by a family of the deceased, Mr Lawi Dabwen.

He said “we have the three suspects in our custody and we shall try them before a law court, even though we are still investigating the incident.”

He added that the three suspects who reside at Kapil village were alleged to have committed the crime at 6 a.m. on Nov. 25 in the area.

The PPRO urged the public to be conscious of the activities of criminally-minded persons and alert the police whenever they suspected any strange movement.

This, he said, became necessary in order not to fall victim of people of questionable character.

Terna also warned the public to guard against jungle justice, adding that the police would deal decisively with anyone found indulging in such act.
