Rocket Attacks:STF arrests 3 suspects in Plateau village



Reports reaching  Newsdiaryonline.com said the STF has  arrested at least 3 persons in connection with yesterday’s rocket attack s on  an Islamic School and  other locations in Bukuru ,Plateau state.The suspects were picked  up in Gyel  village after STF operative stormed there in what a correspondent described as a ‘commando operation’.

The STF had  stormed the  village following strong suspicion that the rockets which hit Bukuru yesterday  were launched  from there .It was learnt that as the security operatives arrived the village today, women and youth came out to protest against any form of search operations there. But the STF men  fired their guns into the air, a move  which swiftly dispersed the protesting women and youth. It was not immediately clear if anybody was hurt  in that standoff.

Captain Salisu Mustapha, spokesman of STF could not confirm today’s operations. He told reporters who contacted him that he was not aware of this last development  because he had gone on assignment elsewhere.

At least three Rocket Propelled Grenades  were launched into Bukuru Jos  yesterday.
