Police Mourn Murdered Officer in Rivers

25th April 2024

The Rivers Commissioner of Police, Tunji Disu, has lamented the death of police officer, Sunday Baba, who was killed in an attack by unidentified assailants.

Disu stated that during the attack, the officer’s phone kept ringing, and upon investigation, it was discovered that he had 59 missed calls, with 51 of them from his wife.

In a post on his X account on Wednesday evening, Disu wrote: “Yesterday night, Inspector Sunday Baba, a brave police officer serving at Rumuolumeni in Rivers State, made the ultimate sacrifice while on duty.

“Though the perpetrators fled, we recovered their vehicle. Tragically, the officer’s phone revealed 59 missed calls, 51 of which were from his wife. We bore the heavy burden of delivering the heart-wrenching news to her.

“Being a police officer means leaving home in good health, never certain of returning alive. Those who take the lives of police officers are murdering those who stand as the guardians of the people. Let’s honour the sacrifices of our officers, may their sacrifice not be in vain. Goodbye, Sunday.”
