The Area Commander in charge of Area K Police Command, Morogbo, Mr. Osung Ekpo, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) dies mysteriously while swimming in an unrevealed hotel in the city on Sunday night while celebrating St.Valentine’s day

The Guardian reports that the incident ‘was the worst valentine gift for the police’ according to a Police source. The Area Commander allegedly died in a swimming pool at a popular hotel in the Ajah area of Lagos.

The Guardian revealed that Ekpo who hails from Oron in Akwa Ibom State was in company of his friends, had gone to celebrate St Valentine’s Day when he decided to swim but unfortunately, he drowned.

Eye witnesses said that Ekpo, whose hobby was swimming was in the pool when he started struggling. He was rescued from the pool and was taken to the hospital but died few minutes later.

Lagos State Police spokesperson, Ifedolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police told The Guardian that the ACP had gone for a swimming exercise when the sad incident happened. In her words:

“The Lagos State police command regrets to announce the death of ACP Usong Ekpo, who until his death was the Area ‘K’  Morogbo, Lagos. The death occurred on Sunday February 14, 2016 while having his routine swimming exercise in a pool. Ekpo was enlisted in the police force in 1990 and worked in various formations of the force. He assumed his last duty post as Area commander on November 14, 2013.
