The Edo state Police says it has arrested members of its patrol team allegedly responsible for the killing of a commercial driver on Tuesday morning.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Johnson Kokumo, said this in a statement in Benin.
According to Mr. Kokumo, members of the team are currently being investigated and if found culpable, would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
He said the command would not renege on its fight against all forms of human right abuses.
He advised parents, guardians and community leaders to prevail on their children not to take the law into their own hands and allow police investigations into the matter.
The commissioner further appealed to residents of the state to go about their lawful businesses and refrain from acts likely to cause breakdown of law and order.
