The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Winifred Ogu, refused to accept several calls made to his phone by the press.
He did not respond to a message sent to him since the report was prepared, but an officer who preferred to remain anonymous confirmed the murder to reporters.
When contacted by phone, provincial police commissioner Abutu Yaro said, “I have no brief information.”
