14 Arrested Over Murder Of Ex Nigeria’s Air Chief Alex Badeh
DHQ detectives from Abuja and DSS operatives have arrested 14 more suspects in the killing of former Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.
Investigations showed that the suspects were arrested by a Joint Investigative Panel which was inaugurated by the Chief of the Defence Staff, Gen Abayomi Olonisakin.
The suspects were scheduled to be paraded today at the DHQ, Abuja but the arraignment was postponed over unforeseen hitches.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian Police Force had in December 2018 paraded five suspects linked to the murder. One of them was a 25-year-old Shuaibu Rabo, who said the former CDS was killed while they were trying to rob him of money meant for the purchase of a new farmland.
A member of the ex-CDS family, however, debunked the claim saying there was no money with Badeh at the time he killed by the gunmen.
The initial parade of the five suspects did not, however, stop military and DSS to follow up the matter as the CDS Gen. Olonisakin order an investigative panel to dig deep into the murder.
