The Police high command has confirmed the arrest of suspected killers of former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.).
According to the police, the suspects will be paraded at the headquarters of the NPF in Abuja on Thursday. The command however, did dusclose the number of persons arrested
“We have made a breakthrough in the case and we’ve arrested suspects who will be paraded on Thursday,” a source disclosed to our reporter on Wednesday.
The former CDS was killed in the evening of December 18, 2018 along Keffi – Abuja road while returning from his farm.
Badeh’s vehicle was riddled with bullets piercing the windscreen and killing him on the spot.
Badeh was not as lucky as the other occupants of the vehicle, as he was the only one that was killed.
This has however raised suspicion as it was believe by many that Badeh’s killing was a case of planned assassination.
Badeh was to open defence in a corruption case instituted against him by the Economic and Financial crime Commission, (EFCC) on the very week he was killed.
The recent breakthrough by the police may either lay to rest or further fuel this speculations
