It was gathered that Sgt. Abraham Ihom and his wife were early this year, murdered by unknown gunmen in Zaki Biam during his visit home.
Our source said it took relentless efforts of men of Operation Zenda to arrest some of the killer gang to get to the site were Sgt. Ihom wife was buried. However, the men are yet to recover the corpse of Sgt. Abraham Ihom.
The family of Sgt Ihom were said to be appreciative to the operation headed by SP. Justin Gberindyer and his team as well as Nigerian Police and Governor Samuel Ortom for intensifying the war against criminality in the state.
