Police To Unravel Why 60-Year Old Ex-Officer Killed Self & Wife

The Ogun State police command have vowed to unravel why a
60-year old ex-officer who retired in March decided to shoot his wife on
Saturday for being drunk and then killed himself shortly after. According to
Police Public Relations Officer in the State, the act is not a normal one, and
they are ready to unravel the misery behind it. Mr Muyiwa also said they would
investigate to know if he legally-acquired the double barrel gun.
The Ogun State Police Command, yesterday, said it would
unravel the circumstance that prompted a 60-year-old retired Assistant
Superintendent of Police, Sunday Isokpehi, to shoot himself and his 40-year-old
wife, Gladys, to death.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi,
who stated this while reacting to the tragic incident, said the Command would
investigate whether or not the late Police officer legally acquired the
double-barrelled gun he used to perpetrate the crime.
The late Isokpehi was reported to have shot his wife to
death on Saturday after returning to their home in Ota area of the state after
accusing her of being drunk, and shortly after killed himself.
Adejobi said contrary to reports that late Isokpehi was a
retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, the officer retired as Assistant
Superintendent of Police, adding that he did not kill his son.
He said: “We are still investigating the immediate and
remote causes of the tragic incident. We will find out whether the man was
depressed or was under any influence, because a normal human being will not
open fire on his wife and then kill himself.
“We will investigate how he got the double-barrelled gun he
used to commit the dastardly act.”
He said Isokpehi retired in March from the Special
Anti-Robbery Squad unit, Lagos Police Command, and was living in Eledi area in
Ado Odo/Ota Local Government.
