This is coming just a week after five people were arrested in connection to the murder of the officers.

Last Saturday, the police released the identities of 12 policemen, six of whom they said were murdered and the six others still missing during a rescue operation in the state.

The officers, including Inspector Abe Olubunmi (IRT), Inspector Friday Irorere, Sergeant Kuden Elisha, Sergeant Akpan Aniette, Sergeant Ayere Paul, and Sergeant Ejemito Friday, were ambushed on February 23 while on a rescue mission.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the policemen were ambushed by armed assailants while undertaking a mission to investigate the disappearance and rescue of three of their colleagues in Ohoro Forest in the state.

He added that five suspects were arrested in connection to the killing of the officers.

This makes it 13 suspects now in the police custody.
