Bishi was said to have died in the early hours of Tuesday after complaining of body ache.
If it was not clear if his death had anything to do with the ravaging coronavirus.
Though the police hierarchy in Nigeria is yet to make a formal statement, NPO Reports confirmed the death of Bishi through a police source which said he was to be buried at the Ebony Vault in Lagos today.
“Yes, he is dead. It’s unfortunate but true,” the source said.
The late police boss was one of those whose promotions were confirmed in December last year. He was a former Commissioner of Police in Benue.
