An ill tempered police sergeant shot and killed at least six mobile police officers in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State

The Sergeant, identified only as Bello, is currently detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

A source disclosed that the incident occurred inside the police college quarters of the Borno Police headquarters in Maiduguri.

According to a family member, the police sergeant had an argument with his wife, and neighbors tried to intervene, but he didn’t listen.

“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.

“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.
