The Defence Headquarters on Sunday night said the Police should be allowed to carry out investigations into the alleged assassination attack on the governor of Kogi state at Kwali, near Abuja.
DHQ said the Kogi state government did not in any way implicate the military in the assassination attempt saying it could be bandits dressed in military uniform.
Director of Defence Information, Brig Gen Tukur Gusau said it could be a case of unknown persons dressed in military uniform but urged patience to allow Police to carry out an investigation
He said, “Most bandits operate in military uniform. He (Kogi Statement) didn’t say military, so maybe we should allow an investigation.
“I am sure police will constitute an Investigation panel and if anything is pointing to the military, I’m sure something will be done
“But for now, we should allow the police to do their work.
“The man didn’t say military but that they used military uniform and we know people for whatever reason always use military uniforms to perpetrate their criminal activities so he didn’t implicate us in any way.”
