A Deputy Inspector General of Police, Joseph Egbunike, who was in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, is dead.

According to reports, Egbunike died on Tuesday, after he slumped in his office, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The DIG, who hails from Onitsha, Anambra State, was until his death, heading the Special Investigation Panel constituted by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to investigate the activities of the suspended head of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, over money laundering allegations.

While details of the incident are still sketchy, it was gathered that Egbunike had met his doctor for a medical check-up after feeling unwell.

Few minutes after he was given drugs, the senior officer who was said to have driven to the office in the company of family members in his usual bubbling manner, slumped and died.
