The suspected suppliers of the ammunition were identified as Anas-Ruwa Tukur and Tijjani Aliyu.

But the commissioner is assuring residents of the state that the police will charge the suspects to court for diligent prosecution to ensure justice, and to serve as a deterrent to others.

He also vowed to rid the North-West state of criminals and restore peace for the people to go about their normal activities without hindrance.
