President Bola Tinubu has ordered the IGP to immediately arrest the perpetrators of the Ekiti state incident to enable the full wrath of the law on all accomplices.

Although this order is before an earlier statement issued by the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., ordering strategic deployments to deal with the incidents, to address the incidents in a bid to find a lasting solution to the menace.

A statement by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja 1st February 2024 said,

The IGP has expressed the unrelenting commitment of the Force to addressing the challenge, ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to book and the kidnapped pupils rescued unhurt.
