The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered a comprehensive and speedy investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of late Ogar Jumbo, an Assistant Superintendent of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps.
The position of the Adamu was made known in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, on Saturday.
Mba quoted the IGP as having said this while condoling with the family, the Commandant General of the NSCDC, friends and professional colleagues of the deceased.
He reassured them that everything humanly possible will be done to ensure that justice prevails in the case.
He equally enjoined that the NSCDC along with the family of the deceased, may, for the purpose of transparency, nominate any medical doctor of their choice to witness the autopsy, at the appropriate time and venue.
He said this was because a comprehensive forensic examination on the body of a dead person will help the investigators to have a definitive understanding of the real cause of death of the deceased.
Adamu called for calm from the family and friends of the deceased and the entire public, reiterating that the case will not be swept under the carpet.
