Slain policeman’s wife called his phone 51 times unaware he was dead – CP

On Wednesday night, Sunday Baba, a police inspector serving with the Rivers State Police Command, met an untimely demise while on duty, the circumstances of which remain uncertain.

In mourning Baba who was attached to the Rumuolumeni Police Division of the command, the state Commissioner of Police, Tunji Disu, said though those responsible for the inspector’s death fled the scene, their vehicle was recovered.

In a message he shared on X, the police chief said when the telephone of the slain policeman was recovered, it showed that his wife called him 51 times unaware that he was dead.

The police chief said he and some others bore the heavy burden of breaking the news to the bereaved woman.

His message read, “Yesterday night, Inspector Sunday Baba, a brave police officer serving at Rumuolumeni in Rivers State, made the ultimate sacrifice while on duty.

“Though the perpetrators fled, we recovered their vehicle. Tragically, the officer’s phone revealed 59 missed calls, 51 of which were from his wife. We bore the heavy burden of delivering the heart-wrenching news to her.

“Being a police officer means leaving home in good health, never certain of returning alive. Those who take the lives of police officers are murdering those who stand as the guardians of the people. Let’s honour the sacrifices of our officers, may their sacrifice not be in vain. Goodbye, Sunday.
