“It is of significant to note that the presentation of the two suspects and the three other gang members will not come up today so as not to jeopardise the ongoing investigation,” he said.

The spokesman, who refused to give their names, said two out of the suspects actively participated in the killing, adding that the remaining three suspects played other roles in the crime.

He said: “The two suspects arrested actively participated in the killing of the former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh,” he said.

Moshood said that the Inspector-General of Police had directed the Police Joint Investigation Team to arrest those responsible for the killing.

He said that the suspects were currently in police custody and undergoing investigation.

“The public should also know that the investigation into the killing is being intensified to arrest other suspects who are still at large”.

He said that the suspects would be presented to the media and the public upon the completion of investigation into the matter.

“The force will not relent and will leave no stone unturned in getting to the root of the killing and bringing all perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice,” the spokesman said.
