by Chinwe Okafor


The family of the late worker with Protea Hotel has petitioned the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Samuel Adegbuyi, over the death of their son.

According to reports by Punch, the family’s lawyer, Raphael Okhuelegbe, revealed that his client wanted a thorough investigation into the matter and the culprit brought to justice.

Okhueleigbe, in the petition dated March 16, 2015, also copied the Assistant Inspector-General of Police Zone 5, Benin; the Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly and the Nigerian Bar Association, Benin branch.

He also said the father, mother and brother of the deceased had made their separate statements to the police.

The petition read in part: “It is our brief that, the last place our client’s family members saw Chibuike Edeh was Adesuwa Police Division, where he was in police custody. All efforts made to ascertain what led to the death of Chibuike Edeh had proved abortive.”

A statement signed by its spokesperson, Joseph Edoighiawerei, said, “The command is aware of the petition written by the lawyer of the deceased suspect. The case of stealing, fatal motor accident and the petition by the lawyer of the deceased have been transferred to the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.”
