The statement read: “We are aware that the suspects, who are now in Abuja, were arrested on May 5 for the offences of criminal conspiracy and culpable killing.
“After the completion of investigations, the police addressed a press conference on May 10. During the press conference, the police emphasised the fact that it was ready to arraign the suspects in court.
“On May 16, rather than taking the suspects to court, the Police decided to take them to Abuja on the order of the Inspector General of Police.
“What is logically deductible from the narrative above is that there is no ongoing investigation by the Police on the case involving the suspects.
