The FCT Police Command has ordered investigations into the cause of the sudden death of a skit maker, Chidike Emmanuel, by suspected herders in Abuja on Saturday.

Sources said the late skit maker was among six persons attacked on Saturday night by herders at Mpape but lost his life to the incident and was taken to the mortuary.

On the heels of the attack, the friends who had gone for a night out bolted in different directions for the safety of their lives. Assembling, Chidike was subsequently found dead, and the incident was reported at the Mpape Police Station.

Imaobong Loveline, one of the victims of the attack, reported the incident to the Mpape Police station and later raised alarm that Chidi’s lifeless body was found in the mortuary.

Imaobong, in a post on social media, displayed the corpse of the skit maker, saying, “The guy in the picture is lying lifeless in the mortuary; he was attacked by Fulani men.

“Any lead to his family members would be appreciated. They should please go to Mpape’s new police station, Berger Quarry. Please repost till it gets to them.”

She added, “Six of us were attacked by herdsmen, and he died in the process. We’re currently looking for information about any of his family members.”

She further disclosed, “His closest relative in Abuja has reached out and visited the police station.

“The police are putting in efforts to make sure the perpetrators will be apprehended. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this.”

However, reports are emerging that Chidi had no family in Abuja but that his family is in Lagos.
