The premises of the Delta Police Command in Asaba on Monday wore a mournful look over the sudden death of the command’s Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Lucky Uyabeme, an assistant superintendent of Police.
The Commissioner of Police, Ikechukwu Aduba, who was represented by the deputy superindent of Police, Charles Muka, the acting PPRO, told newsmen in Asaba that Uyabeme died in a lone auto-crash at Ogwashi-Uku on Sunday.
“Uyabeme died in his Toyota Highlander Jeep at Ogwashi-Uku on Sunday, December 15, at about 3.30 p.m. on his way to Asaba from Kwale in the state,” Aduba said.
He noted that the Highlander Jeep somersaulted many times, threw out the occupants, caught fire and was completely burnt.
The commissioner said that Uyabeme’s body had been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre Asaba’s morgue, while the other victims were responding to treatment at the same hospital.
“The late PPRO will be remembered for his humility, loyalty, gentle disposition, diligence and dedication to duty,” Aduba said.
Uyabeme assumed the position of PPRO in April this year.
