A veteran hard and software analyst of the Nigerian Police force, Inspector Effa Enya, who was bound to relocate to the United States of America is dead after battling with an unexplained illness.
The Inspector hails from Igbo Imabana in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State.
He joined the police force in November 2008 and once worked at the Cross River State Command as a hard and software analyst before moving to Zone 6 headquarters where he worked at the AIG’s office and was later moved to the force headquarters, Abuja where he worked at the IGP secretariat as a computer wizard and then moved to the Interpol Department of the Nigeria Police Force.
Sources said while with Interpol, Inspector Effa wrote a software program for Interpol that availed him the opportunity to travel to the United States of America where he went and presented the program and was given Interpol Secondment to work for 10 years in the United States.
Upon returning to Nigeria to pick up his family and sign some official documents in the office, he fell ill and went through one surgery or the other to the point he couldn’t make it to fulfil his dreams.
His death is described as a great loss to his family, friends, and colleagues. He left behind a wife and a baby of over two years.
A senior police officer at the Command’s headquarters, Calabar, Cross River State who wouldn’t be mentioned told Prime Progress his death is “very painful” adding that he was an “intelligent guy.”
