Late Desmond Nunugwo was the Chief Protocol Officer of the Minister of State for Defence but died in the custody of the anti-graft agency over two months back. A Methodist Boys Lagos, and University of Abuja alumnus, Nunugwo was arrested and detained over allegation that he swindled N91m out of a lady simply identified as Uloma in a bogus business deal.

In a petition the deceased’s family lawyer, Paul Edeh, addressed to Justice Minister and the Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami (SAN), the family accused the EFCC of complicity in the death of Nunugwo.

“The EFCC has blatantly refused that a post-mortem examination should be carried out on the body so as not to be indicted. This may have been the reason why more than two months after Desmond’s death, no move has been made to carry out an autopsy.

“After many visits by our clients to the EFCC and the police, both agencies have maintained that Desmond died a natural death. One, therefore, wonders how both the police and the EFCC could come up with such a common position in the absence of a medical examination to determine the cause of death,” the petition read partly.
