A Police Inspector attached to the Highway Patrol on Saturday night shot his wife and himself after a disagreement.

It was gathered that the policeman identified as Edward was allegedly drunk at the time he pulled the trigger at close range.

The Inspector, whose wife was a Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) Inspector at Ikoyi, was said to have stormed their Warder Barrack flat late Saturday night which led to a fight.

It was gathered that the couple were in the habit of quarrelling and their situation worsened after the woman opted out of the union.

Her threat, it was learnt was borne out of the man’s alleged mistrust and possessive nature.

In the heat of the disagreement, the policemen cocked his gun and fired at his wife. He was said to have thereafter shot himself in the head.

The Nation reports that their neighbours at Flat One alerted Ikoyi NCoS officials who rushed the duo to the hospital.

It was learnt that the woman passed on on Sunday morning while doctors were battling to save her and the Inspector died afterwards.

When our Correspondent visited the barrack on Monday evening, it was observed that occupants of Block one had vacated their flats for fear of a possible arrest.

NCoS officials and plain cloth policemen were seen loitering the vicinity just as traders at the barrack market discussed the issue in hush tones.

Our correspondent overheard some of the traders discussing that the incident happened upstairs. They claimed those close to the apartment said they overheard the woman screaming “why do you want to kill me.”

“Those close to the woman said she had told the man she was not interested in the marriage again,” they said.

Police spokesman Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent (DSP) confirmed the incident, adding that investigation was ongoing.
