IGP takes over case of groom killed five days after wedding

The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has taken over from the Lagos State Police Command the case of the groom, Ugochukwu Ozuah, who was shot and killed five days after his wedding by men in police uniform.

Abubakar has constituted a high powered investigation team to unravel the circumstances that led to Ozuah’s death.

Ozuoh was killed in Gbagada area of Lagos State on September 20, 2012.

According to a statement by the Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, on Thursday, those to take over the case are from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja.

Mba said in the statement: “The IGP has mandated the team to identify and fish out the killer(s).

“The directive is necessitated by the need to maintain neutrality, professionalism, speedy and holistic dispensation of justice.”

Mba said that Abubakar has urged anyone with useful information to send such to the special police email at:

The statement added: “While commiserating with the family, friends and relations of the deceased, the IGP reassured the nation that the Force will do everything humanly and operationally possible to ensure that the perpetrators of the crime are unmasked and eventually brought to book.

“The IGP is also using this medium to dispel rumours making the rounds, especially on the social media, that he had earlier made a definite statement concerning the incident.”
