Police Inspector kills Superitendent, commits suicide over N150k

A policeman, Abraham Arowogun, attached to the Kajola Police Station, Kajola town, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, has committed suicide by jumping into a deep well in the station, after killing Superitendent.


The incident, which occurred on Tuesday, was mysterious to other police officers in the division as well as members of the community.

The deceased inspector had first shot dead the Divisional Crime Office,  SP Timothy Aruehi,  after they had a disagreement over money.

It was gathered that Aruehi had received a complaint that Arowogun, while investigating a case, diverted a sum of money to private use.

"Arowogun was investigating a case and the DCO discovered that a sum of N150,000 was involved. He further discovered that he (Arowogun) had actually converted the money to private use.

"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 Arowogun dead."

The police source added that after killing the DCO, there was confusion in the station as other officers fled for safety.

"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 source added.

The corpses of the two policemen were said to have been deposited in a mortuary in the Ondo State General Hospital, Ore.

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
