A police officer on Monday, after being dropped by another policeman identified as his brother, reportedly slumped and died at Berger roundabout in Abuja while waiting to board a vehicle to Nyanya. The two policemen were said to be in mufti and had wanted to board a long bus to their destination but couldn’t, as the vehicle was already filled to capacity. The other policeman went and mobilised his colleagues in three police vans who later evacuated the corpse.
The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the Utako Police Station, CSP Nwankeneme Eze, said the man was an officer with the command and had closed from his post around Berger on his way to Nyanya when the incident happened. He said until his death, the officer was seen to be healthy by his colleagues.
