Emmanuel Asufi, an assistant commissioner of police (ACP), is dead.

According to NAN, sources at the police headquarters in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa capital, said Asufi, who is in charge of administration in the state, slumped at his duty post on Tuesday afternoon.

Asinim Butswat, spokesman of the Bayelsa police command, confirmed the demise of the senior police officer on Wednesday.

The deceased, who hailed from Ekwani community in Delta state, has been described as an amiable and easy-going officer who related well with other officers.


NAN said during a visit to the Bayelsa police headquarters, officers were seen in groups expressing shock sadness over the incident.

“This life is full of mysteries. The death of the officer is incredible. Many of us saw him coming to the headquarters, smiling and exchanging pleasantries with everyone. He was a unifying factor between the rank and file,” an officer was quoted as saying.

“Oga Asufi was an exemplary officer who did not spare any effort to put smiles on the faces of all who came across him. He was very charismatic and forthright; he was an exemplary Christian whose faith reflected in his conduct.


“We were shocked when an alarm was raised that he had slumped and was dying. He was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre where he was confirmed dead.”

Douye Diri, governor of Bayelsa, was said to have earlier visited the police headquarters over the incident.

Asufi, until his demise, was a student of the Nigerian Law School in Yenagoa.

He had also served as the chief security officer at the Bayelsa government house and as commander of the state security outfit, operation Door Akpor.
