The Nasarawa State Command of the Nigeria Police has cleared the air that the attack on the convoy of the state deputy governor Dr. Emmanuel Adake on Tuesday was not targeted at the deputy governor.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Bola Longe, who disclosed this in Lafia said the deputy governor’s convoy ran into the scene.
“The deputy governor was not the target. There was a robbery and the deputy governor’s convoy ran into the scene. That was what led to the death of five persons, including four in the deputy governor’s security vehicle.
“We want to emphasise that the elements that carried out that attack will be fished out.
“We have started already and we will get there. We will deal with them so that they will know that Nasarawa State is not a place for them to operate”, Bola Longe said.
