Over 100 Suspects Arrested Over Mubi Killings

Over 100 suspects, including students, in Mubi and adjoining communities have been arrested over Tuesday’s gruesome killing of over 25 people, many of whom were students of the Federal Polytechnic and the School of Health Technology, Mubi in Adamawa State.
Although the Adamawa State Police Command refused to give the exact number of those arrested and their identity saying that doing so at this stage would jeopardise investigation, a source within the security circle said over a hundred suspects had been arrested as hunt for the killers continue. A source in the students’ affairs unit of the Federal Polytechnic, Mubi also said one of those killed was among the newly elected executive members of the Student Union Government.

A source at the Federal Polytechnic, Mubi said both Muslims and Christians were victims of the murder. 
“Some of them were shot with assault rifles while others were slaughtered with knife,” the source said.
A lecturer who pleaded anonymity said,
 “As you can see, I am now in Yola because it will be risky for me to stay in the campus because nobody knows what will happen next. We hope the mystery will be unravelled soon.”
He said some of those killed are students that recently won executive post in the students’ union government (SUG) election held in the school.
