Simon Ekpa, a self-acclaimed disciple of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to the death of the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), Joseph Egbunike.
Naija News gathered that Egbunike reportedly slumped and died in his office in Abuja in the late hours of Tuesday.
The late senior police officer was rushed to the National Hospital in Abuja where he later gave up the ghost.
Egbunike headed the Special Investigation Panel constituted by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to investigate the suspended head of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, over money laundering allegations.
In its report submitted to the IGP, the Egbunike-led panel had recommended the demotion of Kyari instead of an outright dismissal.
Reacting to the development on Tuesday, Ekpa blamed the suspended head of the Police Intelligence Response Team for the death of the senior cop.
The IPOB sympathiser said Egbunike’s death must be added to Kyari’s crimes, stressing that the police officer was killed for refusing to betray the South East during the Anambra election.
In a series of tweets via his Twitter handle, Ekpa wrote: “The death of Joseph Egbunike must be added to Abba Kyari’s crime.”
“Abba Kyari and his Co Fulani Jihadists killed DIG Joseph Egbunike for refusing to betray Biafra during the Anambra election. Egbunike rejected the appointment as an officer in charge of the Anambra election but accepted to investigate international criminal Abba Kyari. They killed him.“
