The Police in Borno State have arrested the shooter of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa of Nigeria Church (EYN) members.
The culprit identified as Baba Bukar, a member of a joint security team, a government official said.
The source said that Bukar fired the bullets that hit church worshippers during a clash with Borno Geographical Information System (BOGIS) officials last Thursday.
“He has been in custody of Borno Police Command since the governor directed an investigation into the matter.”
He confirmed that all was being done to make peace with the families of the victims and the church.
The Police would make an announcement soon.
The authorities had promised the Christian community that the killer would be tracked.
Hours after the incident, Governor Babagana Zulum directed the police to investigate, arrest and prosecute anyone connected to the violence and shooting.
The BOGIS exercise caused the death of Ezekiel Bitrus. The deceased was buried this week.
