There has been report indicating that an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) who was rumoured dead in Benin, Edo state two days after he was shot during a gun duel with alleged cultists, has resurfaced.

The police officer has been identified as Agabi Godiri. An earlier report by The Nation claimed that the senior police officer (name withheld) was shot on Friday, November 13, in an exchange of gunfire.

The report said the officer died at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) while two other police inspectors also shot during the operation are in critical conditions.

However, hours after the report, photos of the policeman in a hospital appeared. The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, recently pleaded with men of the force to return to their duties.

The report had said the total number of cult-related deaths in the city and its environs had grown to 28.

It was learnt that the policemen ran into an ambush by some alleged cultists while they were on rescue mission around the Upper Sokponba area of Benin.

Though the report said the death of the ACP was confirmed in confidence through the telephone by a senior police officer of Edo command, photos of the officer had now shown that he is alive.

Meanwhile, the report adds that many policemen in the state are currently receiving death threats from prisoners who fled during a jailbreak that occurred in the state recently.
