Sources at the Defence Headquarters on Tuesday assured that the Joint Investigative Panel probing the killings of three police detectives and a civilian in Taraba during the escape of Hamisu Bala Wadume, a kidnap suspect, would ensure that justice is served on all parties.
Reacting to the re-arrest of Wadume in Kano by police detectives, a top military source said the re-arrest of Wadume would clear all doubts, apprehensions and the perceptions that have been created around the case.
A source said: “I can tell you that the Joint Panel constituted by the Defence Headquarters would do a thorough job regarding this case. There is no cause for apprehension any more.
“I don’t want to pre-empt the work of the Panel, but I can assure you that justice will be served to all parties involved in this matter. I have confidence that the Panel will unearth the truth and clear doubts of everyone”.
However, the Nigerian Army has yet to react to the re-arrest of Wadume by police.
