The Police Command in the Federal Capital Territory says it has taken into custody two of its officers who allegedly killed an officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Nyanya, Abuja.
Late Ogar Jombo, an Assistant Superintendent of the NSCDC, was allegedly killed on Wednesday in the presence of his wife and children, when he was stopped by the policemen for alleged violation of traffic rules.
The Commissioner of Police in the FCT, Bala Ciroma, who confirmed the arrest and detention of the officers to the News agency of Nigeria, said investigation was ongoing to unravel the cause of the incident.
Ciroma said: “There was a fracas between the senior officer and the policemen.
“We have commenced investigation and we will not know what really happened until after the investigation.”
NAN gathered from a relation of the deceased, who pleaded anonymity, that the late Jombo was taking his children to school in the morning when the incident occurred.
