PJonathan Ex Security Head Killed In Abuja!


The Principal Security Officer (PSO) to former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, Tamuno Jacob Igbomie, was shot dead last Friday on Airport Road, Abuja.

Igbomie, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) was discovered in his Honda Accord car, after he was shot at a close range.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, confirmed the killing.



“Yes, a DSP attached to the villa was killed last week Friday. Investigation has started to find out the people behind the murder. No arrest has been made yet,” Ojukwu said yesterday.

Similarly, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Anjuguri Manzah, said the FCT Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu, had ordered an investigation into the tragic incident.

A police source told The Nation that the officer’s body “was found early in the morning. But surprisingly, all his phones, wallet and other personal belongings were intact in the car, which engine was left running”.

It was learnt that the late Igbomie, who hailed from Okrika, Bayelsa State, served at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command before being deployed to the Presidential Villa as Patience’s Aide-De-Camp (ADC) when Jonathan was the vice president.

“He was later appointed as the PSO to Patience when her husband became the President,” the source said.

Another source added: “Tamuno must have been killed by hired assassins because they did not steal anything from his car. We met his phones and wallet with him when his body was found in the car with the engine running.

“He was shot in the night and his body was found early in the morning. We don’t know if he was killed over a business transaction or disagreement with someone.”

It was gathered that the late police officer was just redeployed to the FCT Police Command.
