Panic and confusion became the order of the day in Shell camp, Owerri the Imo State Capital Tuesday, after a lifeless body of a serving police inspector was found. The body was found lying close to the Shell Camp Primary School.
The deceased, identified as Haruna Kaura, was reportedly posted to Imo State Police Command and deployed to the Government House, Owerri, after his demobilisation from the Police Mobile Force, PMF.
Reacting to the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Orlando Ikeokwu, said the deceased had no history of suffering from any ailment, adding that they were surprised by his sudden demise, especially as there were scars on his body showing signs of “shuffling and violence”.
“Haruna Kaura, until his death, was attached to the Government House, Owerri. The team of officers that removed the body discovered marks of violence on his back and neck regions. The ID of the deceased was seen on his palm, with a marked number 18 PMF Squadron, while his service pistol was carted away.”
“However, the corpse has been removed to the morgue, while the investigation progresses accordingly.”
