Nwanbuzor said four people linked to the killing have been arrested.

He said the Commissioner of Police, Dankwara Muhammed, has directed that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

He said the commissioner frowned at the incessant cases of “jungle justice” in the state and advised the citizens to repose more confidence in the rule of law and in the law enforcement agencies.
