The Zonal Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Minna, Niger State, identified as Femi, has been arrested.
He is currently in the custody of the State Police Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, over alleged culpable homicide.
It was gathered that Femi is being suspected of complicity over the death of a married woman, Mrs Christiana Williams at his residence on Saturday afternoon situated along Bay clinic road, Minna opposite old B.Y stores
The woman who was said to be asthmatic had visited the house of the NDLEA zonal commander on the pretence to sell underwears where they had sexual intercourse and thereafter, developed a crisis and slumped.
The suspect, DAILY POST learnt rushed the deceased to Bay Clinic along Bay Clinic road Minna yesterday at 2pm and the death was confirmed by the doctors upon arrival before entering the hospital.
However, when the hospital suspected foul moves, our Correspondent gathered, the hospital quickly contacted the Police at Tudun-Wada Police Station, following claims by the NDLEA zonal commander that the lady came to his house to supply underwear to him, and that she suddenly went into an asthmatic crisis while he rushed out to get an inhaler for her.
But, it was gathered that the husband, Williams, who was shocked and sad over the incident claimed his wife who was asthmatic does not use an inhaler but had some prescription drugs she used during the crisis to calm the situation.
Consequently, the suspect was said to have been arrested by the Tundun-Wada police command and later transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department, CID, for investigation.
A reliable source around the hospital further told our Correspondent that, “the suspect brought the dead woman naked but went back home and returned with her pants, brassiere, and other clothing materials and wore them on her”.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PRO, DSP Wasiu Abiodun confirmed the incident.
He said the matter is currently under investigation.
