He added that the police would not be distracted with speculations, noting that the command would ensure the discreet investigation into the matter.
According to the Commissioner, ”It is not true that Uduak Akpan has committed suicide. The suspect is in our custody. Maybe he committed suicide in the bedrooms of those peddling the rumour, or maybe he committed suicide on social media. This is not true please!”
