Police in Akwa Ibom State have begun investigation into the gruesome murder of an officer, Inspector Osang, by yet-to-identified gunmen.

Osang was beheaded when his assailants stormed his residence located on a lane linking Enen Afaha and Afaha Ube, a suburb within the Uyo metropolis on Wednesday night.

A community source who confirmed the incident while speaking to on Thursday in Uyo on condition of anonymity said the incident occurred at about 8:30 pm.

According to the source, the hoodlums gained entry into the compound and started shooting sporadically to scare away residents and passersby before gaining access to their victim’s apartment.

reports that the murder of the inspector is the third in the series of tragic incidents which began in January after a woman was beheaded near Banking Layout, Uyo, and another lady murdered penultimate Sunday night and the dismembered body tucked in a Ghana-Must-Go bag and dumped by the roadside at the Nwaniba area.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko Mac-Don, who confirmed the incident, described it as unfortunate.

He said the new Commissioner of Police, CP Olatoye Durosinmi, had ordered a discreet investigation into the murder of the inspector, adding that nothing would be spared to ensure that the perpetrators were apprehended.

“We have received that information and it is an unfortunate situation. Already, the Commissioner of Police has ordered an investigation and we are committed to ridding the streets of criminal elements.

“We are not deterred by the incident but we are committed to ensuring that criminal-minded persons will account for their actions,” Macdon said.
