The Ekiti State Police Command have confirmed the killing of an operative of the Department of State Services (DSS) by three soldiers.

The Spokesman of the Police Command, Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Sunday Abutu, described the killing as unfortunate and mindless.

Abutu said the gory incident occurred on Friday evening at a hotel located along NTA road in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital during an argument that ensued between some soldiers and a DSS official, leading to the death of the latter.

He noted that the Command had begun an investigation to unravel circumstances surrounding the incident, adding that the deceased corpse had been deposited in the morgue.

An eye-witness who spoke on condition of anonymity told our reporter that the DSS operatives was stabbed in the neck and bled profusely, leading to his death.

He explained that the incident happened as a result of a hot argument between the soldiers and the DSS staff after they arrested a young boy suspected to be an internet fraudster inside the hostel.

“As the soldiers who were inside the hotel had stopped the young man they suspected to be a ‘yahoo boy’ and interrogating him, the young man saw the DSS operative on a bike and beckoned on him for rescue.

“When the DSS got to the soldiers, a hot argument ensued between them and one of the soldiers became so angry that he drew out a knife and stabbed DSS operatives in the neck.

“The DSS man fell immediately and started bleeding. The people inside the hotel drinking had to run for their lives, in fact, they hurriedly fled the scene to prevent being arrested,” the source said.

He further added that few minutes after the tragic incident occurred, about six gun-wielding DSS operatives stormed the hotel and whisked the soldiers away to their custody. (Text, excluding headline, courtesy The Nation)
