Two police officers have been arrested over the alleged murder of two Fulani youths in Toungo local Government area of Adamawa.
The policemen allegedly shot their victims over an argument over N50.
It was gathered that the incident took place just outside the local government headquarters at about 5pm.
The national liaison officer of Miyetti Allah, Sanusi Bara, told journalists in Yola that but for pleading, his people would have reacted violently.
According to the liaison officer, the two youth, who he named as Jibo and Maikudi, had five and three bullet holes in them respectively.
Mr. Bara produced some bullet shells he said were picked at the scene of the incident.
He said Jibo’s father, Dawa Musa, was now left to cater for the deceased’s two children.
When contacted, the state Police Command Public Relation Officer, Othman Abubakar, confirmed the incident saying the patrol team involved had been arrested.
Mr. Abubakar, who did not give the number of policemen involved in the incident, said the matter was being investigated by the state CID unit.
Meanwhile, there is tension in the area as the Fulani’s are threatening retaliation should the law not take its natural cause.
