“The rush to bail suspects of unrest when arrested for investigation frustrates efforts to find lasting solution to insecurity in Plateau. Henceforth, people rushing to bail suspects will also be arrested,” he said.

“If you find them, please arrest them. If people rush to bail them, arrest them.”

He stated that such action would deter people fond of bailing suspects of unrest, alleging that some persons could be sponsors or accomplices to such crimes.
