A jealous policeman has taken his own life after killing his lover and a colleague over alleged cheating. The lady, who sold GSM recharge cards, was said to be double-dating the two policemen.
Investigations showed that the tragic incident took place at the popular CBN Junction in Karu, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory on Thursday.
The killer cop, a sergeant, was said to be the primary lover of the deceased lady. However, his colleague working with him on the same police patrol team, also started dating the lady without his knowledge. The bubble burst when the sergeant got wind of the development and went to confront his girlfriend.
In the ensuing drama and argument, the jealous sergeant shot the lady twice in the chest. As onlookers tried to come to terms with the unfolding incident, the sergeant again shot his colleague dead. Having certified that the two were dead, he reportedly turned the the gun on himself.
An eyewitness, Mr. Bature Iliya, said he was using the Automated Teller Machine of a commercial bank just across the road when the incident occurred.
