Five week after a female preacher of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Abuja, Eunice Olawale, was murdered in Kubwa while preaching, police in Federal Capital Territory, FCT, said it has not given up with the manhunt of the killers of the pastor.
FCT Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Mustafa told some journalists in his office yesterday that the command was still hopeful of arresting the culprit.
Nigerian Pilot recalls that the Command had in an earlier statement said it arrested 6 suspects in connection with the murder of Olawale on Saturday July 19, but CP Mustafa said there was no evidence linking the suspects to the murder.
Mustafa explained further that suspects were picked randomly and screened, but were released when there was no evidence to link them, even as he debunked rumours that a suspect who was arrested gave useful information to the police on the incident.
He however, assured that the police was doing all within its mandate to apprehend the culprits and that in addition to ongoing investigation; the command was carrying out daily raids on black spots in the territory.
The FCT police chief said, “The bottom line is that we are still searching and we are hopeful to arrest the culprits. We are also carrying out raids on black spots for a possible arrest of the culprits. Since my assumption of office, we have not rested, we are utilising all our crime preventive and investigative measures to track the culprits.
Mustafa said that cases of homicide were capital offences that are always open for review.
He said that the command had embarked on sensitisation of residents of the territory on the need for tolerance for each other’s faith.
