“IGP Adamu condoles with the Catholic Family in Nigeria over the unfortunate incident,” police spokesman Frank Mba said.

The IGP further directed the DIG in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) to provide additional forensic and other investigative assets to the Taraba State Command to aid investigations into the incident.

Adamu enjoined the people to be calm and give maximum support to the Police in the bid to unravel the authors of the crime, their motives and circumstances surrounding the unfortunate killing of the Priest.

He reassured the nation that the perpetrators of the dastardly act will not go undetected and unpunished.
