The 2 were scheduled to be arraigned before the Kogi Federal High Court later in the day, along with Melaye and Audu who they named as sponsors.
Melaye had during the day’s plenary ordered the IGP to find and present the suspects in 48 hours.
He had informed his lawyers to take legal action against the IGP if he fails to find the suspects, he said.
