Family Suspects Foul Play Over The Death Of Insp. Sunday Peter; Seek Igp's Inter by onochurch(f): 8:03pm On May 19
Family suspects foul play over the death of Insp. Sunday Peter; Seek IGP's intervention

Onome Naomi

Family of the late Insp Sunday Peter draws the attention of IGP Egbetokun to order the commencement of an investigation into the death of their brother, the late inspector, who died in the early hours of Friday, May 17, 2024, at about 2 a.m. while on duty. The cause of his sudden demise is unknown to his family, as his team mates withhold valid information leading to his death. The late Inspector of Police was a team member of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and was on duty on the day of the incident that took his life. 

Information gathered by Naomi Sophy Blog states that Insp. Sunday Peter and his team members were on patrol along Falomo Ikoyi when he started complaining of uneasiness and asked to be taken to a medical facility. Upon reaching the police hospital at Falomo Ikoyi, a deposit of N100,000 was demanded to be paid before the he could be attended to. Unfortunately, death struck before medical aid was given to the late Inspector. It was also learned that the colleagues of the deceased delayed paying the said amount due to the unavailability of funds.

Brother of the deceased, Mr. John Peter, on behalf of the family, narrated that he was called at about 7 a.m. on the morning of Friday, May 17, 2023, that his brother is dead. The rude awakening to reality, he said, didn't set in until he saw his brother's corpse after much restriction from the mortuary attendants, who seem to be under someone's command to conceal the body of the deceased from family members. 

The brother of the deceased, John Peter, said the restriction caused by the mortuary attendants, which lasted for over 13 hours, can be described as abnormal. They asked for a documentation that shows Mr. John can rightfully see the corpse and was pertinent about it. After much ado, he was allowed access to see the corpse but noticed another foul play as he was wrapped from neck down, leaving only the face for recognition, which seemed absurd to Mr. John, who was disallowed to have a proper assessment of the corpse despite proof of relativity.

Meanwhile, Mr. John Peter had earlier visited the office of RRS Commander Lagos to obtain information about the sudden death of his brother while on duty but met with stiffly restricted information. The commander claimed he's not gotten substantial information as to the cause of the death of his inspector, only the information given by his team members, which is subject to an investigation before he can make comments. The commander also gave an order to allow Mr. John see the corpse of his brother after he was met with hours of resistance by the mortuary attendants. He said the countenance of the commander shows there is more to the incident than the information given so far.

Naomi Sophy Blog reports that the family of the deceased is concerned about the anonymity orchestrated by the police over the death of their brother by giving a sketchy account of the incident. They said the situation surrounding his death seems unusual; they insist their brother was healthy before leaving for work, and if ever he felt fatigued or distressed, there would have been a sign to note. In addition, after his demise, the family members lament being deprived of seeing the corpse first neither did the police seek their consent before further procedures of body deposition and embalming was carried out.

To this effect, the family of the late Inspector Sunday Peter affirms that the situation leading to the death of their brother remains sketchy. The family is pleading for urgent attention from the office of the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, to order the commencement of a thorough investigation to ascertain the true cause of the death of their brother and husband.
