Gov. Chime Pledges N10m For Information On Slain CP’s Attackers

police-logo1-300x336The sum of N10 million has been pledged by the Enugu State Governor Sullivan Chime to anyone who can provide useful that could lead to the arrest of the killers of Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Chinwike Asadu.

The police chief was gunned down on Saturday in Enugu some metres to his residence – his police orderly and driver were also shot in the attack but are currently receiving treatment.

Chime who made the offer on Monday when he visited the Abakpa-Nike, Enugu residence of the deceased police commissioner, said the offer was borne out of the need to resolve the puzzle surrounding the killing, which he described as “a humiliation to the police and the country”.

“This is most embarrassing not just to the police, but to the nation. For the killing of a senior police officer in such a manner, to me, it is quite unfortunate and the state government has decided to take a position on this in order to show the seriousness of what has happened” Chime started.


“In the last few weeks, it has followed a pattern. What they do now is to follow and kill people with escorts; they kill and collect the guns of their victims. So, we are paying a ransom of N10m for anybody that will give us information that will lead to the arrest of the culprits. It’s quite embarrassing.”

Chime added that the state would provide necessary assistance to security agencies to ensure the culprits are brought to book.

Chime, who also empathized with the Inspector-General of Police, as well the government and people of Kwara State, pledged the state government’s assistance to family of the deceased in order to assuage the pains of the killing.
