Chief provost of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Imo State Command Okiemute Mrere has been shot dead, the NIS said on Monday.

Mr Mrere was murdered on Saturday night on Owerri-Port Harcourt Road in Owerri.

His corpse was discovered in a bush on Sunday morning.

Reports say Mrere was riding a Hilux van belonging to NIS when he was allegedly waylaid, shot and killed.

Mrere’s pistol and valuables, it was learnt, were found on him when his corpse was discovered.

The command’s spokesperson Winifred Oguh confirmed the incident to the news media saying, “Yes I can confirm to you that we lost one of our officers, Deputy Superintendent of Immigration (DSI) Okiemute Mrere.

“We are yet to get full details of the incident as investigations are still ongoing.”

Insecurity has heightened in Imo State in the past few weeks. On Sunday, a former presidential aide Ahmed Gulak was killed in Owerri by gunmen on his way to Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport to catch a flight to Abuja.
