Cross River-born Police Officer, inspector Effa Enya, who hails from Igbo Imabana in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State, is dead after battling with illness.
Effa joined the police force in November 2008. He 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 where he worked at the IGP secretariat as a computer wizard before moving to the Interpol Department of the Nigeria police force.
Reports have it that while with Interpol, Inspector Effa wrote a software program for Interpol that availed him the opportunity to travel to the United States of America (USA), which 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 documents in the office, he fell sick and went through one surgery or the other to the point he couldn’t make it to fulfill 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.
