Police Inspector Kills Superintendent Over Money, Commits Suicide
A policeman, Abraham Arowogun, has committed suicide.
Arowogun, who was attached to the Kajola Police Station, Kajola town, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, committed suicide by jumping into a deep well in the station.
According to a police source who spoke with newsmen, the deceased inspector had committed murder before taking his own life. Arowogun reportedly killed a Divisional Crime Office, SP Timothy Aruehi, after they had a disagreement over money.
“The DCO called and querried him for the action.
“In the course of interrogating him, he stormed out angrily. He returned with a gun which he used to shoot Aruehi dead.”
The source added that after killing the DCO, confusion settled on the station as many ran away.
“After killing the DCO, he knew that what he did was unprofessional and unpardonable in the police force. He just left the scene and jumped into the well at the back of the station.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation had commenced.
“It was an unfortunate incident; but we have begun investigation. The command is very saddened and our hearts are heavy. We are doing everything possible to dig further into the matter and talk to our officers and men to avert a recurrence,” the PPRO said.
