The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the Commissioner of Police, Taraba State Command, to fish-out the killers of Rev. Father David Tanko who was gruesomely murdered in the most inhuman and barbaric manner by unknown persons in the early hours of Thursday, August 29, 2019.
Rev Father Tanko was allegedly murdered at Kpankufu Village along Wukari Road on his way to Kofai Amadu Village in Taraba State.
IGP Adamu while condoling the Catholic Family in Nigeria over the unfortunate incident, expressed deep concerns over the recent incidents of attacks on clergymen in some parts of the country.
Accordingly, the IGP directed Commissioners of Police in all the States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to henceforth pay special attention to the clergy and increase security around worship centres nationwide.
The police boss also directed the DIG in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) to provide additional forensic and other investigative assets to the Taraba State Command to aid investigations into the incident.
He enjoined the people to be calm and give maximum support to the Police in the bid towards unravelling the authors of the crime, their motives and circumstances surrounding the unfortunate killing of the Priest.
IGP Adamu reassured the nation that the perpetrator(s) of the dastardly act will not go undetected and unpunished.
