The Commissioner of Police in Adamawa State, Afolabi Adeniyi, has disclosed that the cause of death a 17-year-old boy, Abdullahi Abba, also called Abdallah would be released on Monday.
Earlier, the state governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, issued a directive to the police boss to get to the root of the alleged murder of the teenager.
Speaking through the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, SP Suleiman Ngurore, Adeniyi revealed that the investigation into the alleged murder case had been completed.
“I can confirm to you that the investigation has been concluded and the report will be released on Monday.”
He assured that the report of the investigation will be submitted to the Governor on Monday, saying that justice will be served in the case.
The late Abdallah was arrested on August 5 and tortured after a neighbour complained to the task force about a missing phone and accused the victim of stealing it.
There were reports that the deceased was tortured by members of Operation Farauta, a task force of police and military personnel combating crime in the state, pointing out that the victim became unconscious after the attack.
The boy eventually died on Wednesday, August 9, after days of receiving medical attention at the Modibo Adama Teaching Hospital in Yola.
In another news, three persons were on Saturday confirmed dead while one other sustained injuries when a Toyota Sienna car plunged into the Omo River around Area J4 on the Sagamu-Benin expressway.
The incident was confirmed to newsmen by Mrs Florence Okpe, the Public Education Officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun.
She said, “The accident occurred around 11:55 am and the suspected cause of the crash was excessive speed and loss of control which made the vehicle plunge into the river.
“The vehicle marked APP 830 HX was coming from Benin and heading to Lagos.”
The FRSC spokesperson disclosed that the bodies of those dead were deposited at the State General Hospital morgue in Ijebu-Ode.
Okpe added that three male adults were found dead while one person sustained injuries in the lone vehicle accident. The injured victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
She also quoted the State Sector Commander of FRSC, Anthony Uga, as describing the crash as avoidable if caution was considered.
The sector commander stated that speed limit violation by motorists, especially the commercial vehicle drivers on that route, was the cause of many road traffic crashes.
