“I received the news of the death of AIG Yunana Babas with shock and sadness. It is one tragedy too many,” the statement read.
“On behalf of the people and Government of Kwara State, I condole with the entire police family, especially the Inspector General of Police and the immediate family of the top officer, on this devastating development.
