SAN FRANCISCO, February 27, (THEWILL) – A junior mobile policeman attached to Mopol 10, Bauchi, on Thursday night shot dead the former aide-de-camp to Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, Mr. Chris Ifeanyichukwu Eza.
The yet to be named killer cop turned himself in for arrest at a Bauchi police station after the shooting, THEWILL sources said.

Police sources told THEWILL that the motive for the shooting has not been established but added that the killer cop went berserk following a minor disagreement with Eza before shooting him five times, killing him instantly.
The death of Eza who hailed from Erowha in Isoko South Council Area has been a rude shock to those who served with him in Delta when he was ADC to Uduaghan.
Police Public Relation Officer DSP Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident while speaking with newsmen in Bauchi on Friday.
He said when the incident happened, “the victim was rushed to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital Bauchi where he was certified dead by a Medical Doctor and the corpse deposited at the Mortuary for postmortem examination.”

He said the suspect, a police corporal was arrested and detained while the Commissioner of Police has ordered for a full scale investigation into the matter to know the reason why the suspect shot him to death.
