Police says It’s able to trace an ‘Alhaji’s killer with new forensic tools

Muyiwa Adejobi, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, reeled off police achievement on his X handle saying it tracked killer of a certain ‘Alhaji’ killed in Plateau.

According to the police officer, the force now has forensic investigative capacity since after being able to trace a suspect from very little details like blood on an over coat, foot print in a pair of shoes and so on.

“IRT (Intelligence Response Team) operatives used these recovered items [see pix], the shoes and the jacket, to trace the suspects who killed one Alhaji in Plateau State.

“Our experts lifted the prints on the shoes, and did forensic analysis of the blood stain on the jacket, which matched the blood sample of the deceased, which formed the main expert opinion and direct evidence to prosecute the culprits.

“Forensic investigation is key and fundamental to a better CJS [crime and justice system] in Nigeria.

“We intend to have more forensic laboratories in our state commands and FCID. Moving from analogue to digital,” he said.

Plateau is currently the center stage of mindless killings with over 300 people dead from hands of militias believed by residents to be religious fundamentals.

Residents also say that security agencies have been partisan in the killings in the state.

Adejobi’s comment may not likely sit well with sections of Plateau residents who insist that police and other security operatives only swing into action when a ‘class of people’ get killed.
