The following incident reportedly took place at a restaurant in Nyanya Gwandara area of Karu Local Government of Nasarawa State.

A hotel worker, who simply identified herself as Lydia said that Sergeant Agada drank some beer at Hotel ‘D Memories’ before the incident.

She stated that the late sergeant did not finish his drink before storming out to the restaurant being run by his estranged wife popularly known in the area as Madam Angela.

Lydia said, “The policeman came into our hotel around 9am on Sunday and ordered for a bottle of beer. But while sipping his drink, he was looking in the direction of his wife’s restaurant which was nearby.

“After some minutes, he stood up and left his beer, saying, ‘Today is the end of this woman since she has chosen to divorce me.’'

“The next thing we heard was gunshots and we all ran out to the scene to find the policeman lying dead on the ground and his wife and her maid in pains.”

Initial reports suggest the deceased was depressed over the break-down of his marriage after his wife left their matrimonial home a few months ago.

She was also alleged to have started a romantic relationship with another man.

Angela had a child for the late sergeant before their union broke down.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Nasarawa State command, DSP Kennedy Idirisu confirmed the incident, saying the deceased bodies have been deposited in a mortuary pending an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
