According to an eyewitness, the suspect who had been beaten to a pulp by the angry mob, fell ill and was rushed to the hospital for treatment where he was certified dead.

Following the sad development, the police said some residents of Kabusa, during the violent protest, attempted to overrun the Divisional Headquarters but were resisted by a Joint Team of Police Operatives.

A statement by the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yusuf Mariam explained: “Regrettably, in the bid to restore calm one young resident sustained serious injuries and is currently receiving medical attention.

“In view of the above, the Commissioner of Police CP. Bala Ciroma sympathises with the families of the victims and has ordered a discrete investigation into the incident.

“The Command implores residents to remain calm, law-abiding while reaffirming its unwavering commitment to the protection of lives and property within the FCT.

“The Command further implores residents to report all suspicious movements, emergency or distress”.
