In Delta State, gunmen killed an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Usman Ndah. Ndah, it was learnt, was shot on Sunday but died yesterday. Prior to his murder, the ACP was the Area Commander in charge of Ughelli Area Command
The circumstances, which led to his death killing, were still sketchy as at the time of filling this report. When contacted on the phone, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed that Ndah was killed by gunmen. Aniamaka said the command had not ascertained whether his assailants were kidnappers or assassins.
He said: “Yes, an Assistant Commissioner of Police was killed in Ughelli. I don’t know where those who attached the killing to kidnappers got that from. All we know is that he was shot dead.”
In what seems to be a recurring decimal, a suspected smuggler was shot dead yesterday during a gun fight with men of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) at the Sango-Ota axis of Ogun State. A few weeks ago, two men were killed in Abeokuta, the state capital, when Customs officials reportedly opened fire on them
