Last week, i refused to report a story that trended about a police junior that killed his superior officer, ‘their’ girlfriend and then him self, in Karu area of Abuja. But with the recent findings that these men were married with children; i have decided to tell the story of these wasted lives as a result of foolishness, dumbness and adultery back fired.
A police corporal attached to the Karu Police Station in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, has gunned down a senior officer an Inspector, over an argument over who was the real lover of a female recharge card seller. The corporal turned the gun on the object of their disagreement and killed the lady, then killed his boss, and afterwards, shot himself in an apparent murder-suicide.
According to eyewitnesses, the incident occurred in the evening of Thursday, April 30, 2015, at Karu Town, close to the CBN Junction, when the corporal, who claimed he was the lover of the pretty recharge card seller simply known as Chidinma, saw the inspector and the recharge seller sitting together over some bottles of soft drinks.The corporal accosted the Inspector, accusing him of dating his girlfriend. He was also said to have accused the lady of being unfaithful to him after he had spent so much money on her. The inspector, being a senior officer, saw the actions of the corporal as an affront and ordered him to get out of the place immediately or be dealt with decisively.
But the very angry junior officer threatened that he was going to kill the lady so that none of them would have her but the Inspector did not take the threat seriously and instead warned the corporal get away from there. The corporal, still fuming with rage walked away from the inspector and the recharge card seller but unknown to everyone, he corked his AK-47 rifle, walked to the senior officer and the lady and shot the girl who slumped and died on the spot. Before the inspector could draw his own riffle, the corporal also fired at him and killed him instantly. Having achieved that, the corporal then turned the gun on himself and killed himself with one bullet.
Those who knew the lady said she was a poor homeless girl who was taking refuge in a popular church in Karu Town while trying to make ends meet before the ugly incident.
Both men were married with kids. What a waste??? How do their wives explain their death? God forbid!!!
