Police Investigate Killing of Corps Member in Nasarawa

The Nasarawa State Police Command has commenced investigation into the alleged murder of a serving member of the National Youth Service Corps by some youths in the Akwanga Local Government Area of the state last Thursday.

Samuel Makene, a 2018 Batch ‘A’ corps member, was allegedly stabbed to death at the Akwanga residence of Mr David Ombugadu, a People’s Democratic Party governorship candidate and the House of Representatives member representing the Akwanga/Nasarawa-Eggon/Wamba Federal Constituency.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Samaila Usman, who confirmed the incident to Northern City News on Tuesday, explained that investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of the corps member had commenced.

He said, “We received a report about the incident and we have commenced investigation in order to arrest the perpetrators of the act. I want to assure you that we will do everything possible to bring those involved to justice.

“I call on those close to the deceased not to take any action, but they should allow us to do our job.”

The father of the deceased, Mr Dauda Makene, in a speech during the funeral service for his son explained that Samuel was killed while attempting to protect the lawmaker’s property from vandals.

He further alleged that those who killed his son had planned to do so due to a lingering feud between them and the deceased.

Dauda said, “My son was trying to protect the properties of his principal when the incident happened. The sad part is that this is not the first time the boys had antagonised Samuel. It was the same set of boys that stabbed him to death.

“We have accepted what happened as the will of God and will not take the law into our hands. Also, I am appealing to our youths not to also take the law into their hands even though I know how much they loved Samuel and how painful the incident is to the family.”

Ombugadu expressed shock over the incident and decried the manner in which the corps member was killed, describing it as unfortunate and painful.

The PDP governorship candidate pledged to make adequate security a priority if elected in 2019.

He said, “What happened is so painful and I have been asking myself, why Samuel? I was almost approaching Abuja when they told me about what happened to Samuel. He was the owner of the house, my house was his own. Anytime I was not there, he was always there to take care of the place.

“That was why when we left for Abuja, he was there taking care of everything. He was steadfast, consistent and humble, and I will really miss him.”
