Fresh facts have emerged on why the former security aide of former first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP Tamuno Igbomie was murdered last weekend in Abuja.
Security sources who spoke on the unfortunate incident which occurred along the Airport Road said the killing was not unconnected with his role as the former first lady’s aide.
DSP Igbomie, who was married with two children, was believed to have been killed by assassins who shot him at pointblank range in his car and left the engine running last Friday. His body was found in his Honda Accord car, with his vital documents, including phones, wallet and other personal effects, intact, thus, ruling out armed robbery as motive for the killing.
The security source disclosed that Igbomie was very close to the former first lady and must have stepped on several toes in the discharge of his duties.
According to him, DSP Igbomie, an indigene of Okrika in Rivers State, was a very influential player during the political campaign in the last election; and he must have incurred the wrath of many people who crossed the part of the first lady.
Another source alleged that Igbomie may have been engaged in some deals while acting as security aide and the people might have come for a payback. He called on the police to investigate all angles to the incident and ensure that the culprits are brought to book.
The source averred that the killers could have come from Rivers State where he said, the former first lady played a major role with the crisis that erupted in the state during the last general election.
It was learnt that the late policeman had just been redeployed to his former position at the FCT Police Command, where he was in charge of posting of junior officers.
Force spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu, confirmed the killing of the policeman and disclosed that investigation had commenced to unravel the assailants.
“Yes, a DSP attached to the villa was killed last week Friday, investigation has started to find out the people behind the murder. No arrest has been made yet,” Ojukwu said.
FCT Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu, had ordered an investigation into the tragic incident.
