The suspects arrested include Biliaminu Abdullahi, Samaila Saleh, Muhammadu Kabiru, Aminu Mohammed, Alhassan Saidu, Abubakar Adam, Gazali Isah, Hamza Inusa Yahuza Yau, Dahiru Ahmed and Friday Musa.
The police, however, withheld names of two other suspects.

Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the relocation of the DIG in charge of operations and others has yielded positive results.
The police spokesman also said security situation has improved in the affected communities.
He said: “It would be recalled that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, visited Plateau State on the 26th June, 2018. While in the state, he assessed the security situation and police deployment.
“Since his visit, the security situation has improved, peace and normalcy has been restored in the affected areas in the state.

He also said the suspects are assisting the police team with useful information in the further investigation into the incident.
