The Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has been challenged by the former Senate President, David Mark over that death of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officer who was killed in Abuja.
Mark called on the acting IGP to bring the perpetrators of the crime to book.
As previously reported by Naija News, the NSCDC official was allegedly beaten to death on Wednesday in the presence of his wife and children, when he was stopped by some policemen for allegedly violating traffic law.
The police Command while reacting to the incident stated that it has arrested two of its officers allegedly involved in the incident.
The PRO of Police, Frank Mba, in a statement stated that the NSCDC officer slumped at the police station which led to his death.
Mark in his reaction to the police statement in a statement through his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh called on the IGP to do his possible best to reveal the cause of Ogar Jumbo Ochigbo’s death.
Senator Mark lamented what he described as “humiliating experience of Ochigbo’s wife and the kids who witnessed the murder of their father.”
“No matter what the issue or disagreement was, Ogar Ochigbo’s death would have been avoided if the police officers on duty applied wisdom and caution in the discharge of their duties.”
“Nothing should be compromised in the investigation, saying, “life is sacrosanct and no one has the right to take another man’s life needlessly.”
Mark described the NSCDC officer’s murder as cruel and barbaric and wondered why policemen that should protect Nigerians are now the orchestrators of such act.
