Inspector Festus Onori, 45, was reportedly killed by some commercial motorcyclists at Ogwasi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State.
Punch His Metro learned that the deceased was lynched on Sunday on his way to church in the presence of his wife and children.
Mr Austin, the brother of the deceased, said on Monday that the inspector was on his way to church with his wife and three children when a commercial motorbike hit him from behind in Okpanam.
“As my brother drove off for fear of being hit, motorcyclists pursued him. As they continued to track him, that number increased.
“When he arrived at Marble Hill (Okpanam), he thought they would get discouraged and retreat, so he took this road and turned onto the highway. They tracked him down and confronted Kwale when his car ran out of fuel on the Ogwasi-Uku-Kwale Expressway.
