A serious shock has taken over Mabushi community in Abuja after a police officer killed his colleague.

DailyTrust reported that the tragic incident happened on Saturday.

It was gathered that the police officer on special protection duty at a residence shot his colleague dead.

The tragic incident happened around 10 am after the two officers engaged in banter on the #EndSARS protest.

A witness who preferred to remain anonymous told Daily Trust yesterday that the officer was allegedly drunk before the incident, and after he became aware of his action, he shot himself and died on the spot.

“The two officers were arguing about the #EndSARS protest then we heard the sound of a gunshot. The other officer that was gunned down could be heard saying. ‘He has killed me,’ then he muttered some prayers and all went quiet,” he said.

He added that some officers around the vicinity tried to intervene but before they couldn’t do anything, the police officer shot himself too.

“After the incident, another officer told us that there was no prior animosity between the two of them. So, we believe that is how Allah said they will both end their lives,” the source added.

He said the Mabushi Police Division was eventually called and their remains were evacuated from the scene.

When contacted, the FCT police command’s spokesperson, ASP Mariam Yusuf, declined comments.
