The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, on Tuesday said its North-West zonal director Julius Haruna has died.
The director died in his office in Katsina last Wednesday during fisticuffs with Ms Muibat Abdusalam, another employee of the commission.
Secretary of the Governing Board of FCCPC Tam Tamunokonbia said in a statement that the police have launched an investigation into the incident.
Ms Abdusalam is in the custody of the Katsina State Police Command.
He, however, said the FCCPC has set up its own investigative panel to probe the circumstances that led to the death of the director.
Tamunokonbia said the board had also directed an immediate, but temporary relief of relevant leadership and operatives within the commission to ensure a fair, transparent, and credible investigation.
