But when the journalist resisted their move, they stabbed him to death, Shehu indicated.

According to him, the two suspects confessed to the crime during investigation and some items belonging to the late Danjibga were recovered from them.

The commissioner also paraded three others, suspected to be bandits, who specialize in kidnapping and raping women.

Another person was also paraded for alleged supply of arms from Abia State.

Shehu maintained that at the conclusion of investigation, all the suspects will be charged to court for prosecution. (NAN)
