    IGP Arase plans befitting burial for ACP Osung Ekpo


    By Emmanuel Udom

     There are strong indications that the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has ordered that a committee be set up to plan for a befitting burial for Ekpo Osung, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, who died in Lagos.

    Our correspondent  recalls that ACP Osung, an indigene of Oron in Akwa Ibom State, died on Sunday, February 14, while swimming inside a pool at a hotel in Ajah area of Lagos.

    Until his death, Osung was Area K Police Commander, Morogbo, Badagry, Lagos. But, some officers in Lagos and Abuja, who spoke off records, said the death of the police topshot is a mystery.

    The officers argued that “it is unheard of for a man who was born and brought up in Oron, a predominantly riverine area in Akwa Ibom, whose indigenes are fully involved in fishing to die just like that in a mere swimming pool”

    Beyond the mysterious dead angle allege by the officers, our correspondent gathered that IGP Arase will soon appoint officers to serve as members of the burial committee for ACP Osung.

    Olabisi Kolawole, Force Public Relations Officer, Abuja could not be reached for official comment on the burial arrangements.

     However, Dolapo Badmus, Police Public Relations Officer for Lagos State Command said that “ACP Osung was a very senior police officer and the police authorities will plan a befitting burial for him”  

    Police sources said the late ACP Osung, who resided with his family at OPIC Estate, Agbara was instrumental to the tracking of the dare-devil armed robbers, who looted some banks around the area, carting away millions of naira, saying that Osung knows the terrains in Agbara and its environs.
