Police Inspector Commits Suicide For Mistakenly Killing Colleague In Rivers State



Tragedy struck the Rivers State Police Command as a Police Inspector, Nelson Abuante committed suicide after he mistakenly shot a colleague, Inspector Monday Gbaramana in Rivers State.

The sad incident occurred on Sunday at Nyogor-Lueku, in Khana Local Government Area of the state.

Trouble started when the two officers who are attached to the Taabaa division had gone to effect an arrest of one Mr. Akere Akpobari.

It was gathered that Akpobari resisted arrested which led to an altercation between him and officers. While the scuffle lasted, Inspector Abuante mistakenly shot his colleague Gbaramana.


Gbaramana was rushed to a hospital but the situation became worse when they ran out of fuel in the car that was conveying him to hospital. This eventually led to his death.

When Abuante found that his colleague was dead, he turned his gun to himself and committed suicide.

Confirming the incident, the Spokesperson of the Command, Grace Iringe-Koko said “both bodies have been deposited at the mortuary while investigations are ongoing”.
