Mustapha was said to have lost his life in the motor accident at the Omifon end of the Ondo-Ore Expressway, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State on Sunday.
It was gathered that the officer was travelling to visit his family when the accident occurred. Sources said his son, who was also in the Toyota Camry in which the deceased was travelling, survived with injuries.
A source said, “The accident occurred at about 7pm on Sunday. The DPO‘s car somersaulted and he died instantly. The son, however, survived the accident with injuries.” The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, said Musapha’s death was a great loss to the command.
He said, “The news of officer Mustapha’s death came as a rude shock; we will greatly miss him in this command.”
The police spokesman added that unlike what had been going round the town that the DPO died in a controversial circumstance, “Mustapha died in a fatal motor accident.”
