THOSE BEHIND THE MURDER OF DR IYU ILUOBE MUST BE BROUGHT TO BOOK- DELTA STATE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE
The Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali,on January 1,2023, received members of the Nigerian Medical Association Delta State Chapter in his office over the death of Dr. Uyi Iluobe, who was murdered in his hospital, Olivet Clinic, Oghareki,Oghara, Ethiope West LGA, Delta State on December 29,2022.
Information available revealed that on the said date, a female patient whose name and address are not known came to the hospital at about 1940 hours pretending to have abdominal pain. While the doctor was attending to her, she made a phone call to the suspects whom she deceptively invited to come and pay her bill and that she was being treated by the doctor. Moments later, the hoodlums stormed the hospital in a Toyota vehicle, entered the doctor’s office, and shot him twice in the chest, leading to his death.
The purported female patient fled alongside the suspects.
The Commissioner of Police, while extending his heartfelt condolences to the family members of the deceased medical doctor and also members of the Nigerian Medical Association, reassured them that the case will be thoroughly investigated to ensure that the deserved justice is served.
The commissioner of police further stated that the rumours making rounds that the family members of a supposedly dead patient were responsible for the murder of the doctor is completely false and should be disregarded as there is no record of any patient that died prior to the unfortunate incidence.
