414

A police inspector, Nelson Abuante, has committed suicide after mistakenly killing a colleague, one Inspector Monday Gbaramana, during an attempt to arrest a suspect in Rivers State.

The infamous incident

The tragic incident happened on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 17, at Nyogor-Lueku, Khana Local Government Area of the state.

The two officers attached to Taabaa Division were said to have gone to Nyogor-Lueku to arrest one Mr Akere Akpobari over some allegations made against him by his mother.

Mr Akere had resisted arrest and this led the two inspectors to employ the use of force.

‘In the course of the altercation, Inspector Nelson Abuante mistakenly shot Gbaramana and he sustained serious injuries. So, Abuante and Akere’s mother tried to rush the injured officer to the hospital,’ a source told Punch.

Gbaramana was confirmed dead

On the way to the hospital, the car conveying them ran out of fuel and Inspector Monday died in the process.

‘Immediately Abuante discovered that his colleague had died, he carried his gun and shot himself to death,’ the source added.
