Police Sergeant drowns in Lapai

A police sergeant, Abubakar Musa, has drowned when he and three oth­ers were stormed by bees in a canoe, leaving it to capsize.

The incident hap­pened at Gbachinku vil­lage, Lapai, Niger State.

According to police source, they were on their way from a case of mischief that was re­ported to them which cost him his life while the other three officers nearly died too.

“The spirit among those officers was very good – you could trust them to go anywhere and do anything in line of their duty.

“In those conditions, those officers must have been absolutely remark­able, there is no other word for it. It must be frightening, absolutely frightening,” he said.

Confirming the inci­dent, the Divisional Po­lice Officer, DSP Auragi Jonathan, who was sad­dened with the death, said it’s quite unfortunate to lose a loved one. “May God grant the family and colleagues he left behind the fortitude to bear the loss”, the DPO added.

However, the other three police officers are said to be responding to treatment.
