“The late Brigadier-General OA James was having a walk back to his residence when a Toyota Highlander with registration number EKY-177-FX knocked him down resulting in an instant death,” Jonathan said.

“Consequently, the driver and the vehicle are in the custody of the Centre Provost office to assist in unravelling the circumstances that led to the very regrettable loss of the senior officer.”
