Former Principal Security Officer to Dame Patience Jonathan, Tamuno Jacob Igbomie, has been shot dead by unknown assailants.
The Deputy Superintendent of Police’s corpse was found in his Honda Accord car last Friday along the Airport Road, Abuja with the engine running.
His phones, wallets and other personal effects were all intact.
“He was shot in the night and his body was found early in the morning; we don’t know if he was killed over a business transaction or disagreement with someone,” an official who served with him at the presidential villa said.
The deceased hails from Okrika, Bayelsa State, and was serving at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command before he was deployed to the Presidential Villa as Aide-De-Camp to Patience when her husband was the Vice President.
He was later appointed as the PSO to Patience when her husband became the President in 2011.
He had just been redeployed back to his former position at the FCT Police Command, where he was in charge of posting of junior officers
