He said, “We commend the dedicated officers who made the arrest just as we wait for a thorough investigation to follow.
“We have resolved to encourage the police to do their job properly.
“We appreciate all Nigerians who have encouraged our 94-year-old leader in this troubling season. It is our prayer that criminals will not go unpunished again in our country.”
