Following the bloody attack, the 25 policemen were declared missing because their bodies could not be found to confirm if they were dead or alive coupled with the fact that their whereabouts was unknown.
The manhunt for the killers however yielded fruit yesterday as seven of them were said to have been arrested in Borno State while attempting to escape to Niger Republic.
A top police source who confirmed the discovery of the remains of the 25 policemen in a mass grave in an unnamed village said:
“By the time we found the missing policemen, their bodies were already decomposing in a mass grave in the village. It was a gory sight.”
He, however, promised that no efforts and resources would be spared by the police in ensuring that the perpetrators are fished out and prosecuted.
