Joseph Egbunike, a Deputy Inspector-General and the head of the Nigeria Police Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) died after he collapsed inside his office in Abuja in the late hours of Tuesday, 8th of March.
It was gathered that Egbunike who was in charge of the highest investigating arm of the Nigeria Police collapsed and died at the spot.
Egbunike had, in late 2021, investigated suspended police chief, Abba Kyari, but did not indict him despite indictments by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In July, Egbunike also faced contempt following the alleged disobedience of the order of the Federal High Court, Enugu Judicial Division.
Salemgists gathered that some time ago, a medical doctor, Michael Nweze accused Egbunike, of obstructing the criminal investigation of an Anambra State judge, Ifeanyi Nweze.
Michael had accused the judge, who is his brother, of illegally taking over their late father’s property, adding that two police investigations had established a prima facie case of forgery and criminal conversion of property against his younger sibling.
