A Doctor was killed and burnt in Zamfara

Zamfara State Police Command has launched an investigation into the gruesome murder of a medical doctor identified as Enoch Okpara.

Okpara who was a consultant Obstetrics/Gynaecologist working at the Federal Medical Centre in Gusau, was found dead at his residence in Mareri area of the state capital on Saturday June 13.

The remains of the deceased was found burnt beyond recognition after the church he worshipped in raised an alarm of him missing after not showing up for a programme on Saturday morning, which was quite unusual.

It was gathered that the leaders of the church contacted some of his colleagues who tried his mobile phone number which rang repeatedly without response.

His colleagues who suspected that something was wrong checked his apartment and saw his car parked inside the compound.

The police who gained access into his apartment after being contacted, found the burnt body of the deceased in the courtyard while bloodstains were seen on the walls of the room.

Shehu Mohammed, Zamfara Police Spokesperson said the Commissioner of Police Usman Nagogo has ordered an investigation aimed at arresting the perpetrators and bringing them to justice.
