Debates will again come up on the security situation in Nigeria, no thanks to the assassination of the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Chinwike Asadu by yet to be identified gunmen in Enugu, his hometown. The late CP was shot on Saturday evening by a group of men who trailed him to his residence and opened fire as he was about to enter his Amoji Nike residence in Enugu East Local Government Area.
The assailants reportedly shot the car severally from the rear. While the Commissioner died in the shooting, his aides, Oliver Omeh and Olaniyi Aloha were critically injured and are both receiving treatment at the National Orthopaedic Hospital in Enugu. The late Commissioner had gone to his hometown on a visit for the weekend.
