A consultant Obstetrics/Gynaecologist working at the Federal Medical Centre in Gusau, Zamfara was found dead at his residence in Mareri area of the state capital on Saturday June 13.
The remains of Dr Enoch Okpara was found burnt beyond recognition after the church he worshipped in raised an alarm of him missing after not showing up for a programme on Saturday morning, which was quite unusual.
It was gathered that the leaders of the church contacted some of his colleagues who tried his mobile phone number which rang repeatedly without response.
His colleagues who suspected that something was wrong checked his apartment and saw his car parked inside the compound.
The police who gained entry into his apartment after being contacted, found the burnt body of the deceased in the courtyard while bloodstains were seen on the walls of the room.
The Zamfara State Police Command has now launched a thorough investigation into the horrific murder of the medical doctor.
Shehu Mohammed, Zamfara Police Spokesperson said the Commissioner of Police Usman Nagogo ordered an investigation aimed at arresting the perpetrators and bringing them to justice.
