Another Mulsim leader,shiekh Najib Sonko said that the rate at which police carries out its investigations leave a lot wanting.he gave an example of police taking his phone so that it tracks those who were sending him messages threatening his life.

Sonko said,''I want my phone back because police has been with it for over a year but has done nothing.''

He said that only one of the 4 men who were sending him threatening messages has been arrested but the others are moving freely in the city.

Imam Abdu Ndawula said that there is laxity of the police chief and his policemen in hunting down the killers.He said,'' If the thugs had killed a member of parliament or a bishop,police would have worked around the clock to arrest them.

But police spokesman, Fred Enanga said that police has done its best to arrest those suspected to be involved in killing Muslim clerics.
