Saturday, December 21, was indeed a sad day for some residents in Dutse, Abuja as a police inspector, John Markus, shot dead one of his colleague and committed sucide later on.
According to Channels TV, it all started when Markus went about firing shots into the air at the Dutse police divisional headquarters and shot his male colleague, a corporal (Matthew Akubo) in the head after he tried to call him to order.
Even more, when a superintendent of police Abdullahi Ovanu, came out from his office to make inquiry as to what transpired, the inspector also shot him in the arm.
After his unexplanable behaviour, Markus committed suicide by shooting at himself through his mouth.
