Nasarawa Killings: Enough Is Enough, Says IGP As He Vows To Fish Out Killers

Mohammed-AbubakarFollowing the brutal killing of scores of policemen in Nasarawa state on Wednesday by members of an ethnic militia – Ombatse, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has given Assistant Inspectors General of Police (AIGs) in charge of the North Central zone and the Nasarawa State Commissioner of Police the marching orders to arrest the persons behind the dastardly act.

In a statement signed by Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Mba, on Thursday, Abubakar vowed to bring the perpetrators to book in record time warning, “enough is enough.”

The statement reads: “We consider the attack not just an attack on the Nigeria Police and its officers and men but an attack on the collective will of Nigerians to protect and preserve our dear fatherland. This, we have vowed to put an end to.

“This disturbing, condemnable and highly distressing incident, coming closely after similar ones in Bayelsa and Borno States, had thrown up new and emerging threat in the delicate task of policing our country.

“Consequently, the IGP has directed all its field commanders and Special Units including Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Commissioners of Police to harness all resources available within their domain in ensuring that this reign of terror and lawlessness is brought to an end.

“The Nigeria Police Force working in conjunction with all positive minded Nigerians, will do everything within its powers to fish out and bring to book all those involved in this and other similar killings of law enforcement agents.

“We must put an end to this endless circle of impunity. Enough is enough.”


  1. This news is fake, this is totally untrue, the governor was the one that planned all of this conspiracy. What buisness does the government have to do with my traditional belief. For you to join Ombatse one of the true facts there is your concsience, if can join you are welcome but we dont force anyone. Imagine about hundred policemen to go and arrest one man for what reason.

  2. The governor was non-chalant when hired fulanis from Niger attack several people in the state. But why is he raising fake alarm now. Very soon the vile will be uncover about that governor. He want to finish killing the Eggon people God will judge him for all the killings going on. And there was this invidence that he was the one that hired fulani’s from Niger and Mali to come and fight the Eggon people he never reported it to the federal level why? We are not fools, everyone has his own choice weither to be a muslim or christain or a traditional worshiper. Mind you Ombatse is not cultism but traditional rite.

  3. Dont worry this yrs 5,000 police wil voluntrly leave d job bcs of all wat z happening in d Northern part n let us See whom 2 used or kil again. O oooo Military take over. Can dz happ durring military Regim ? Answere.
