48 hours after Governor Nasir El-Rufai put the figure at 130, Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Abdulrahman has distanced himself from the governor’s action, saying that the casualty figures of Kajuru killings is yet to be ascertained.
The police commissioner while briefing newsmen in Kaduna on Thursday, however, warned nobody would stampede investigations on the killings, adding that, “figures in a crisis of this magnitude should be left until all investigations have been concluded.”
According to him, “You cannot come up to quote a figure and you will say again later you will have to come and say it again. As far as the police is concerned, we are investigating, the investigation is still in embrayoic stage.
“So you can see that there is no reason for anyone to say this one said this figure and that one said another figure.
“That was why the number of casualty during the Kasuwan Magani varies between SEMA and police. Police said 55 bodies were recovered and SEMA said seventy something.
“My friends in media asked about the variation and I said the variation must be there because we the police are quenching the fire and making arrest of suspects and so. What we saw is what we will now say.”
