There was pandemonium in Ilorin, Kwara State capital on Thursday as a married, Mobile Police sergeant in uniform killed his suspected woman friend and later shot himself dead in a school premises.

It was reliably gathered that the unfortunate incident, which occurred at about 8:00 am, happened on the premises of the Chapel of Redemption, UMCA, Agba Dam Housing Estate, Gaa Akanbi, Ilorin, where Redemption Model Nursery and Primary School is located.

Investigation revealed that the deceased officer who is married to a teacher with two girls, works in Ilorin, while his family is based in Oke-Ero, in Oke-Ero local government area of Kwara state where the officer visits them once in a month. 

The MOPOL sergeant, whose identity could not be ascertained as at press time, was said to have been attached to the Kwara state Government House, Ilorin by the state Police command as one of the security agents.

The deceased officer was said to have lately spent huge amount of money on the single mother to get another apartment only for her to inform the officer that she was no longer interested in the relationship.  

It was also gathered from  residents and shop owners around the school that  the Police officer was said to have been on trail of his deceased female friend around the school premises for some time before the Thursday morning shooting and killing and confirmed that she was already dating another man.

The angry officer was also said to have visited the family house of the deceased female friend located at Erin Ile road, Gaa Akanbi few days ago to allegedly attack her with cutlass.

It was also gathered that the deceased MOPOL sergeant had entered the school premises at about few minutes before 8:00 in his brand new Toyota Corolla car earlier than his female friend who had brought her daughter to the school later.

The deceased female friend, and mother of one, was simply identified as Tosin.

The police officer was said to have brought out his AK-47 rifle and shot Tosin on the chest three times just as the mother of one died on the spot.

It was gathered that the MOPOL sergeant corked the gun again, stood the rifle on the ground, aimed his throat and used his leg to pull the trigger just as his head was blown off with the single shot and he died on the spot.

Reacting to the development, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Okasanmi Ajayi, on behalf of the state Police command, in a statement, titled RE: KILLING OF  A LADY AND SELF BY A POLICE SERGEANT IN ILORIN, said that the  deadly incident was an aftermath of love gone sour "and that it has nothing to do with police brutality".
