The CC has denied knowledge of the arrest of any of its personnel over the killing of three policemen in Taraba State by soldiers.

The police stated this in response to reports that two policemen working at the Ibi Division in Taraba State were arrested by the panel set up by the Defence Headquarters to investigate the killings, for allegedly leaking information to the suspected kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume, of plans to arrest him.

The panel was also reported to have ordered the arrest of five soldiers who were at the army checkpoint. It was further reported that 60 people alleged to be working for the suspected kidnap kingpin were on the run.

The panel was said to have also dismantled the two army checkpoints along the road where the killings occurred while the bodies of those killed had been conveyed to Abuja.

A source was quoted as saying that among those being hunted were drivers of commercial vehicles and motorcycles belonging to the kidnap suspect. ]
