Police officer slumps, dies at burial ceremony


A Police Inspector, Michael Timitimi, attached to the Bayelsa State Police Command has slumped and died.

The incident occurred during the burial rites of his grandmother in Igbedi community in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area.

The officer’s death has thrown the security agencies, including the State Vigilante Service and Bayelsa Volunteer Service into a mournful mood.

Eyewitnesses said he slumped and died shortly after dancing fitfully at the wake in honour of his grandmother.

A visit to the headquarters of some security outfits showed the officers were shocked and mournful after news of the police inspector’s death was broken to them.

The Chairman of Bayelsa State Volunteers, Hon. Oyinkuro Lucky Asanakpo, and the leadership of the agency have paid a condolence visit to the family of Timitimi who was formerly attached to the security outfit. (The Nation)
