Police Sergeant Shoots Girlfriend, Himself In Yobe
Kennedy always quarreled with his girlfriend. He sometimes accused her of cheating on him but nobody suspected he would take his anger to a 'point of no return'.
But on Tuesday, May 9, Potiskum town in Potiskum local government area of Yobe State was left in shock after the police sergeant shot his girlfriend and killed himself.
According to Daily Trust, the incident happened around 11:45AM inside the sergeant’s apartment located at old secretariat building, adjacent Potiskum police station.
“They were having some issues these days, blaming the lady of cheating on him, but nobody suspected he will do something like that,” a neighbour said.
Luckily for the girlfriend, she managed to survive the attack but not without serious injuries for which she is receiving treatment at a hospital.
The Yobe State Police Commissioner, Abdumaliki Sunmonu, said that the sergeant was alone with the girlfriend in the room when the incident happened so only preliminary investigation will reveal what transpired.
“Later, it was discovered that the sergeant shot his girlfriend, and shot himself. They were taken to hospital where the sergeant was confirmed dead, while the girlfriend is in critical condition,” he said.
The couple had been dating for almost two years.
