Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja Police Command has said that it is still investigating the murder of one of its officers, Inspector Mohammed Useni at the Asokoro, Abuja home of the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha.
Useni, who hailed from Jigawa State was reportedly strangled to death at his duty post two weeks ago and his rifle, an AK47, taken away by the people who killed him.
It was gathered that Useni was killed few days after the withdrawal of the officers of the Department of State Services, DSS, attached to Ihedioha.
Ihedioha was reportedly away during the murder, and his Chief Press Secretary, Oke Epia, said he was not aware of the matter as he had just returned from a foreign journey.
Sources claimed that, apart from the victim, another policeman was on duty on the fateful day, although he claimed to be in another part of the extensive compound when the murder occurred.
The body of the officer was deposited in an undisclosed morgue, pending further investigation aimed at finding the killers and the motive behind the gruesome act.
Reacting to the murder, Chief Ihedioha tasked the Nigeria Police and other relevant agencies not to relent in their effort to investigate the killing with a view to finding the assailants and bringing them to justice.
Two weeks after, FCT Police spokesman, ASP Anjuguri Manzah, said the police are still investigating the murder.
He said it is disheartening that somebody will kill a policeman on duty, stressing that Useni’s death is a loss t the Nigerian police and they (police) do not intend to make its finding public.
He did not tell our correspondent if the corpse of the police officer has been buried.
