Police Constable, Ibrahim Musa, of Nangere Police Division on Friday, September 25, 2015, shot dead two of his superior officers following a quarrel in the course of discharging their duties.

Eyewitness, a Police officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, explained that Constable Ibrahim was being questioned over a case brought from Tarajim Village when he angrily opened fire and shot Inspector Mohammed Musa and Inspector Ishaku Elam.

The source said that Ibrahim, who shot his superiors with AK47, also resorted to killing himself with the same gun; but he later died in the Potiskum General Hospital.

The corpses of the three Police men had been deposited at the hospital’s morgue and are to be buried according to Muslim rites.

Meanwhile, efforts to contact Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Toyin Gbagedesin, proved abortive up to the time of filling this report.
