According to him, “For now, it is not wise to tell you that the figure is five, six or seven, because we are still gathering information as regards the clash and it could increase within the next one hour.
“We have arrested a total of 58 suspects and more are still being searched for. As soon as we get them, we shall bring them to justice.”
