NewsPolicePolice Sgt. Kill Six Colleagues In Maiduguri

MAIDUGURI — A tragedy has struck at the Police College quarters of Borno Police headquarters in Maiduguri when a police officer simply identified as Sergeant Bello went amok and killed six mobile police officers.

A family source said the police sergeant had a misunderstanding with his wife and neighbours tried to intervene but he didn’t listen.

According to sources, the wayward officer is currently being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

“He started shooting and threatened to kill everyone. Unfortunately, he shot people, but six mobile policemen died and two others are currently receiving treatment at Specialist Hospital.

“He razed down two blocks of eight rooms in the process and also shot his father-in-law.

“He and his wife have been having issues for some time now; we tried to settle it amicably, but he refused.

“The wife told her parents that the sergeant assaulted her; she moved her things out of his house. The wife left due to severe maltreatment by her husband.

The Borno state Police Public Relations Officer could not be reached as at the time of filing this report as his phone was switched off.
