The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command, on Monday, paraded killers of General Uwem Udukwere (rtd) in Abuja.

Daily trust had reported that the retired army general was killed by suspected armed robbers who invaded his private residence at Sunshine Estate, Abuja, in the wee hours of Saturday.

The police commissioner in the FCT, CP Benneth Igweh, while parading the suspects at the command in Abuja, said two among the robbers who are now at large escaped with the deceased’s pistol.

He gave the names of the suspects as Ibrahim Rabiu, Nafiu Jamil, Aliyu Abdullahi and Mohammed Nuhu, who are all residents of Apo, a satellite town of Abuja.

He said the suspects were arrested after acting on credible intelligence by operatives of the FCT police command from Utako division led by CSP Victor Godfrey, who trailed the suspects to their hideout.

He said the suspects, who confessed to the crime stabbed the late brigadier general with knife when he tried to resist them from dispossessing him of his pistol.

According to him, the knife allegedly used by the suspects in committing crime was recovered, even as he said the late army general’s phone was recovered from them.

CP Igweh, however, said the command is making all efforts to arrest the two other fleeing robbers and to also recover the army general’s pistol from them.

He said the suspects would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation.
