The entire Police officers at Lagos State Command, Ikeja, were thrown into shock and mourning over the sudden death of a Senior Police officer attached to FSARS as he reportedly slumped and died inside the office.
We confirmed that the Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Christopher Akpan, died on Friday in his office after he returned from an operation and went to the bathroom to freshen up.
He was said to have slumped and was down unconscious before some other officers discovered what happened and rushed him to an undisclosed hospital where doctors merely certified him dead and the corpse was deposited at the mortuary for autopsy report.
What would have led to his death was yet unknown because the autopsy report has not been made public but his colleagues said there was no report that he was sick the previous day.
The late Akpan was former Station Officer of FSARS before he was elevated to a higher position before his eventual death.
He hailed from Akwa Ibom State and was married with children who reside at Okota Barracks in Lagos.
Since the incident happened, some of his colleagues had expressed shock over the incident describing the late Akpan as a disciplined officer, who worked diligently and professionally with his other colleagues.
The late Akpan will be remembered for some breakthroughs he made at FSARS, where he worked tirelessly by exposing and arresting criminal elements within Lagos and other areas across the states of the federation.
No date has been fixed for his burial
