The Nasarawa State Police Command says it has arrested twenty-two people in Lafia following violent protest by some groups over the impeachment notice served on Governor Umaru Al-Makura.

The state Commissioner of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who confirmed the arrest at the news briefing on behalf of the state joint security committee, said no life was lost but two persons sustained injuries and were hospitalised in Lafia.

He explained that a locally-made pistol, some ammunitions, knives and dangerous weapons were recovered from the suspects.
