Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has expressed shock and disbelief over the killing of his former aide-de-camp, Superintendent of Police Chris Eza in Bauchi State on Thursday night.
Uduaghan, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sunny Ogefere, said he was speechless when the news of the death got to him and was yet to come to terms with the reality of the tragic incident.
“This is heartbreaking; it is a personal loss … for a very young man to die in his prime in that manner is devastating. Chris was a gallant, courageous and dedicated police officer who was never afraid to take on any challenge.
“I pray that God Almighty will grant us, particularly the family and the police the fortitude to bear the loss.” [myad]
