Eight people have been killed in cold blood by a police officer, Corporal Sunkanmi Ogunbiyi, attached to the Ogun State Police Command.

The corporal, who killed himself afterwards, also shot three others who have sustained different degrees of injuries in the early hours of Thursday.

The incident was said to have occurred after the late police corporal picked a quarrel with his wife, who was also a corporal at the same command, over the audacity of the land lady to harbour his wife.

Confirming the incident, the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, said there was no sign of insanity associated with the police officer before the heinous crime was committed.

Sources say he left the police headquarters at Eleweran, just a few kilometres to the scene of the incident, on a commercial motorcycle, raced to the house, shot at his wife, Tosin, who is also a police officer attached to Obantoko Police Station, the landlady of the house, Iya Basira, the landlady’s daughter, Basira, the landlady’s son called Taofeek, another unnamed son as well her grandchild called Kaosara Jesu Tofunmi.

He also shot and killed Kunle, the motorcycle rider who brought him to the house before killing himself.

Three other victims he shot, one of them called Sikiru, are said to be in critical condition and receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre at Idi-Aba.

The seven corpses have also been taken away from the scene of the incident and deposited at the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta.
