Policeman kills self, wife, six others in Ogun 

It was a scary scene yesterday in
Eleweran, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, as a Police Corporal,
Sunkanmi Ogunbiyi, shot dead his wife, Corporal Oluwatosin Faremi, and
six others.

Ogunbiyi critically injured three people before killing himself with own riffle.
Instead of returning his official AK –
47 riffle to the police armoury after a night shift, it was learnt that
went home with it yesterday around 7:05am and shot his wife, who was
about to leave for work.
The late Faremi was attached to Obantoko Divisional Police Headquarters.
Ogunbiyi spared his two children, who
were dressed for school, and went to the front of their compound, where
he shot a commercial motorcyclist simply identified as Kunle, who was
there to pick up Ogunbiyi’s wife and children.
As residents ran to safety, Ogunbiyi
dashed into the apartment of his landlady, popularly called Iya Basira,
who was sleeping on a mat and rained bullets on her. She died
The landlady’s two sons, Taofeek, an
SSII pupil of Nawar-u-Deen Grammar School, Obantoko and his elder
brother, Sikiru, were not spared. Ogunbiyi shot them too.
The woman’s daughter, Basira, and her
two-year-old daughter, Jesutofunmi, suffered a similar fate. They were
killed by Ogunbiyi’s bullets.
When the dust finally settled, eight persons, including Ogunbiyi, were dead. The police gave the figure as six.
Three survivors, who sustained gunshot
injuries during the attack, were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre
(FMC), Idi-Aba. The remains of the dead were taken to the morgue of the
State Hospital, Ijaiye.
An eyewitness said the late Ogunbiyi had
warned the late Iya Basira several times to stop accommodating his wife
and children whenever they have a misunderstanding.
Police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi
described the incident as “unfortunate”, adding that the late Ogunbiyi
had been having “domestic conflicts” with his wife.
Adejobi said: “The unfortunate incident
occurred this morning when the corporal, who had been having domestic
conflicts with his wife, shot and killed six persons with his rifle,
including his wife, Woman Corporal Oluwatosin Faremi; his landlady; a
two-year-old baby girl; two males and one female. Three persons were
injured and are receiving treatment at the FMC. The said corporal,
having killed these persons, shot himself dead immediately.
“The Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna
Okoye, described the incident as unfortunate. He has visited the scene
with other senior police officers in the command to assess the situation
and sympathise with the relations of the deceased and members of the
Akingbala Ifelodun Estate in Eleweran Area, Abeokuta, where the incident
took place.
“The command has commenced thorough
forensic investigation into the killing and promised to make sure
justice is done in the matter. The commissioner of police appeals to the
public to perceive the incident as one of the unfortunate social
mishaps and not to judge the police based on it. The police are
committed to the protection of life and property and will not tolerate
violation of people’s rights.”
