I advised El-Rufai against releasing casualty figure in Kaduna crisis — CP
Abdulrahman, who stated this on Thursday, refused to confirm the figure quoted by the governor, saying his men were still investigating the incident.
He said, “I told the governor that figures in a crisis of this magnitude should be left (unquoted) until all investigations have been concluded in all the areas where information is coming from, are covered.
He said, “We are working on three prominent theories. First is that unknown gunmen believed to be Fulani, attacked the Adara people and escaped in the night on 11 February. The DPO in charge of the area immediately mobilised his men to the area and combed the bushes in search of the perpetrators in the middle of the night.
“It was there that they started seeing the carnage. Unfortunately, the Adara natives went to the Fulani communities and carried out a reprisal.
“However, we have arrested one of the suspected Fulani that attacked the Adara people.”
