The command’s spokesperson, DSP Obed Mary Malum stated this in a statement issued to newsmen yesterday in Gombe.
She said the first two principal suspects, Mohammed Jarmai of Tudun Wada quarters and Usman Yerima, 26, aka Seaman, of Nasarawa quarters of the metropolis, both ex-convicts perfected the crime while serving jail term at the Gombe Central Prison yard.
