She said, “according to the report with me, it was the police operatives from Kemta Division that attended to the attack.

“Two gunmen on motorcycle shot one Mutiu Salako, a PoS operator who later died in the hospital. It was not a case of cult killing as being speculated. Three suspects have been arrested after the police raid of the area”.
