According to Punch, the suspects were said to have been brought before a Chief Magistrates’ Court, Gwiwa in Sokoto for criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide.
The anti-graft agency also noted that the suspects have been suspended by the commission and handed over to the Nigeria Police Force. The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this on Tuesday during a press conference at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Isah was allegedly beaten to death by Odunayo and Tochukwu who were his senior colleagues, over the deceased’s refusal to sign off on incomplete exhibits seized from a fraud suspect, that was handed over to him.
At the press conference, Uwujaren said Isah died on May 7, 2023, at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto, where he was receiving treatment for the injuries he sustained.
He said, “They had disagreed over procedures for the custody of items belonging to a suspect in detention, leading to a fight, a conduct which the commission frowns at.

Both offences, Uwujaren said, were punishable under Sections 60 and 191 of the Sokoto State Penal Code Law, 2019. In addition to the police investigation, the EFCC spokesman said the suspects will face further disciplinary measures in line with the commission’s staff regulations.
He quoted the commission’s chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, as sending condolences to the bereaved family…..CONTINUE READING
