The Nigeria Police Force may have broken the lid to the gruesome assassination of the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff , Rtd. Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.
The former CDS was killed while returning from his farm on December 18, 2018 by unknown assailants.
A credible source at the Force Headquarters, in Abuja confirmed the development last night, and that some of the suspects have been arrested.
He said the breakthrough was the product of painstaking, discrete work by operatives, he said are still on the trail of others at large.
While initial information suggested that suspects may be paraded today (Thursday) at Louis Edet House, in Abuja, it was however learnt that the police is not taking kindly to the leakage of the arrest of the suspects.
According to our source, ” the fear is that the leaking of news of the arrests may hamper effort to round up other suspects that are suspected to be on the run”, the source said.
Recall the ex CDS was killed on his way from his farm along Keffi Abuja road with his Tundra Toyota truck riddled with bullets, some piercing the windscreen. He reportedly died on the spot.
Of the three occupants in the truck, the CDS was the only one killed in the attack.
