“In the cause of containing the incident, a number of suspects were arrested and will soon be charged to court.

“Members of the public are enjoined to work with the police and other security agencies by providing timely information on any emerging threat to our collective peaceful existence.

“They are also to caution their relations and wards to desist from supporting or joining the violent group as the command has resolved to apply the full weight of the law in dealing with persons disturbing the peace in the state,’’ Aliyu said.
