Former aide-de-camp to Delta state Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, Mr. Chris Ifeanyichukwu
Eza was on Thursday night shot dead by a junior colleague in Bauchi state.
Eza who is now the Squadron Commander Mopol 10, Bauchi was reportedly killed by an enraged junior officer.
Though details of the incident were still sketchy, police sources told Daily Times that the junior officer went berserk during a minor disagreement and shot his superior point black.
The source said that the trigger-happy junior officer fired five round of ammunition which killed the deceased on the spot.
After killing his boss, the junior officer whose identity couldn’t be immediately ascertained, reported himself to the nearest police station and was immediately arrested and detain.
The death of the Eza, who hailed from Erowha in Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta state, sources said came as a rude shock to staffers of Government House Asaba and the state governor who the source said had expressed great grief and sadness.
In could be recalled Eza and his orderly were shot in the leg few years ago when hoodlums attacked the convoy of Uduaghan along the Benin-Warri highway at Oghara, headquarters of Ethiope West Local Government Area of the state.
The deceased who is the breadwinner of Eza family also lost his father who was a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) to armed robbers attack some years back.
