Tragedy struck at the weekend when a retired Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sunday Isokpehi, who at one time served at the Lagos state police command anti-robbery squad, on Saturday September 20th, killed himself, his wife Gladys and their son at their Sango Ota, Ogun state residence after a heated argument with his wife.
According to reports, the former police boss and his wife began fighting when they returned home from a wedding on Saturday after he accused her of disgracing him at the wedding by getting drunk.
The woman reportedly denied being drunk and before anyone could stop the couple, they started fighting. Seeing that his wife was overpowering him, the retired police boss went for his pump action riffle and shot his wife and then shot their son who had been trying to separate them. Seeing the gravity of the crime he'd committed, Isokpehi reportedly turned the gun on himself.
After the unfortunate incident, preliminary investigation showed that he couple had been having regular domestic fights.
Confirming the sad incident, the Ogun state Police spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the bodies of the all three have been deposited at the hospital for autopsy. He said the police will carry out a detailed investigation.
