JUST IN: Former IGP Convicted Of N13 BILLION FRAUD, Tafa Balogun Is Dead

In a saad development, former Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mustapha Balogun, under the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo, is dead.

Balogun reported having died at a hospital in Lekki, Lagos at about 8:30 pm on Thursday after a brief illness.

However, there is yet to be an official confirmation by the Police headquarters as the high command is reported to have said that they are yet to be informed of his death by his family as is the practice, at the time of filing this report.

Balogun, who was appointed IGP in March 2002, was forced into retirement by the administration of President Obasanjo in January 2005, following his running battle with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) under Nuhu Ribadu, over allegations of corruption on a massive scale.

The late IGP was born on August 25, 1947, in Ila Orangun, Osun State, and died at 74, a few days after his 75th birthday.

A respected investigation officer of the Nigerian Police Force, Balogun attended the University of Lagos, graduating in 1972 with a B.A. in Political Science. He joined the Nigeria Police Force in May 1973.

While a police officer, he gained a law degree from the University of Ibadan. After working in various positions around the country, he was a member of Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police Course 3.
