Commander of A/0 SWAT, in the Plateau State Police Command, Superintendent Nahun Gwadi Eli, has been found dead in his hotel room in Jos, Plateau State.
He was found dead and lying on the floor beside his bed after concerned officers broke into his hotel room.
Doctors have ruled out foul play in Eli’s death.
According to sources, his men became worried after repeatedly calling his phone line, but it repeatedly rang out.
This led some of the policemen to head to his hotel room, where they also knocked countless times, but got no response. This made them force the hotel room door open.
The death of the SP Eli has been ruled as sudden and unnatural.
A police source said: “On 23rd of October, at about 5:30pm, information was received from A/0 SWAT Plateau State Command that they have not seen nor heard from their commander, SP Nahum Gwadi Eli.
“He didn’t report to duty and his phone was ringing, but no response.

“They called the management of the hotel and forced the door open.
“He was found lying on the ground beside the bed.
“The family has been contacted and the scene of the crime was visited by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Anglo-Jos.
“A Police Medical doctor was called upon and photographs were taken.
“The body was removed to Plateau Specialist Hospital, where he was confirmed dead by a medical doctor.
