Acting DPO passes on mysteriously in Ondo
It was all grief yesterday in the premises of Yaba Divisional Police Station, Ondo West Local Government Area (LGA) due to the untimely and mysterious death of the Acting Divisional Police Officer (DPO), DSP Aminu Mustapha.
There were conflicting reports about the death of the senior police officer due to the diabolical events that occurred in his office, shortly after he was transferred to his new place of assignment.
Meanwhile, the police command disclosed that the late Mustapha died in an auto crash, but some officers, who were discussing the tragic loss in hushed voices yesterday confided in The Guardian that he slept and never woke up.
It was gathered that the deceased was transferred from Irele Division in Irele LGA of the state to Yaba last week, and faced some administrative hostilities and difficulties in his new station.
A source among the police rank and file, who pleaded anonymity, revealed that some fetish objects known as “ebo” in Yoruba language, was placed in front of the late DPO’s office after he resumed work last week.
The source added that the ugly development made them to organise an emergency prayer meeting at the vicinity of the station to cancel any purported misfortune, which the fetish objects were aimed to accomplish in the station.
The informant noted that the late Mustapha was hail and healthy before going to bed on Saturday but later died in his sleep at Irele where he stays with his family, attributing his death to the fetish objects placed in front of his office.
But the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Femi Joseph, refuted the report that the officer died in his sleep, affirming that he died in a car crash at Omifon axis on the way to Irele after close of work.
