Unknown gunmen who abducted the Deputy Superintendent of Police in Edo state, Godwin Oshiogbuwe, have reportedly killed him in the forest.
DSP Oshiogbuwe was on his way to Asaba when the vehicle he was travelling in was stopped by gunmen who were on the road apparently to kidnap. Police sources said DSP Godwin and others were taken into the bush where he was killed. A Pastor who was travelling along the same route was shot and is receiving treatment in a hospital.
The police man’s body was found in a forest on Ubiaja-Ewohimi-Agbor road by a police tactical team who were in pursuit of the kidnappers.
It was gathered that the victim was killed by the kidnappers when they discovered that he was a policeman through his police identification card and pictures in his mobile phone.
The late DSP Oshiogbuwe, who hailed from Auchi in Edo State, served in Abuja before his death.
The recovered body has since been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.
