It was gathered that Mr. Adaka and three of his colleagues from Agudama Police Division were assigned to provide security at a wake keep on November 6, 2016 where they were rewarded with N20,000.

Trouble began when an argument ensued over the sharing formula for the gift.

Prince Yabrifa Joseph, a representative of the family of the deceased policeman, said that the family just received the autopsy report which confirmed that Mr. Adaka died of gunshot wounds.

He said that the pathologist who conducted the post-mortem and autopsy found pieces of the lethal bullets in the spinal cord of the deceased.

Mr. Joseph, who expressed satisfaction with the steps so far taken by the Bayelsa Police Command on the incident, said that the family is demanding the prosecution of the suspects.

“We have been following developments on the case. Our interactions with the police indicate that three of the policemen with Adaka on that day were immediately arrested and detained,” Mr. Joseph explained.

“We were also told that one of them who was found not to be culpable has been released while two are still in police custody awaiting prosecution while they have been discharged.

“Most importantly, investigations have indicated that the police officers were on official duty when the incident occurred and not illegal duty as being speculated in some quarters.

“We are still in grief because Salvation Adaka was a breadwinner to his entire family, including his extended family. He had an aging mother, five children as well as elder and younger brothers that depended on him.

“We urge the police to sustain the tempo and not to tamper with the evidence available that will form the basis of prosecution. We shall follow this matter to a logical conclusion,” he said.

Sources at Bayelsa Police Command confirmed that the two policemen indicted in the case have dismissed.

The late Salvation Adaka was 33 years old.
