Three men have been arrested by the police in connection with last Sunday massacre of worshippers at the St Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Anambra state.
This was disclosed by the police spokesman, Moshood Jimoh.
He said the arrested suspects are wealthy men in the society but have no identifiable source of income, the Nation reports.
He, however, did not say their names.
The suspects are said to be very wealthy but with no identifiable means of income.
He said “The arrested suspects have no identifiable means of income and they completely have no explanation as to their means of livelihood.
“No doubt, when people do things relating to the offence of drug-running, they do not have a recognized means of livelihood.
“I would not want to say that they are ‘big men’ because anybody can claim to be big but once you commit crime, even if people in the society say you are a big man, it is the duty of the police to hold you and take you before the law. The process is not a respecter of anyone’s social standing.”
According to him, the suspects are aiding the police in its investigation of the dastardly act.
He assured Nigerians that the perpetrators would be brought to book be they in Nigeria or outside the country.
“The Nigeria Police and Interpol will get them anywhere they are,” he added.
