IG vows to apprehend Kwara CP killers

04 March 2013, 09:04

Abuja - The Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Abubakar, on Sunday promised to do `everything’ possible to apprehend and bring to book the killers of  Chinwike Asadu, Commissioner of Police in Kwara.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, CSP Frank Mba, the Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, quoted the IG as saying that the circumstance surrounding the death of the late commissioner was `most unfortunate and saddening’.

``Those who murdered Asadu have murdered sleep, they will find no rest, they will find no peace, they will find no comfort and they will find no hiding place until they are brought to justice," Mba quoted the IG as saying.

 Mba said the IG had also ordered the commissioner of police in Enugu State to leave no stone unturned in arresting and bringing the perpetrators of the crime to justice.

He said Abubakar had also directed detectives from the Police Homicide Unit as well as the Special Anti-Robbery Squad to provide technical support to Enugu State command in efforts to apprehend the killers.

Asked if the police had made any arrest in connection with the crime, Mba said he could not confirm that.

``I cannot confirm that, this is deliberate because we want to focus on our investigation," he said.

The late commissioner was reportedly shot dead in his residence in Enugu on Saturday night.
