On his part, the Commissioner of Police, Ahmad AbdurRahman explained that though the police had mopped up the area, the residents still fled their settlements in fear of more attack.
He confirmed the arrest of seven suspects in connection with the attack, adding that they would be charged to court on Monday.
The police chief said investigation was continuing, adding that it was largely to identify the miscreants and isolate them from the good people within the communities so as to restore lasting peace.


Also speaking, the governor lamented over the politicisation of the situation by being in denial of the real issues at stake.
“Some leaders are living in denial. They are saying only 11 were killed and the security have said 66 were killed while the community said over a hundred were killed and missing”, El-Rufa’i noted.
He advised the people to be vigilant, as those politicizing the issue have disregarded those that died simply because they were not from their tribes.


“All lives are sacred and equal, hence we must collectively bring an end to this menace,” he said.
