Army Corporal guns down Police Inspector

11:07 PM

 An army corporal, Tuesday, shot dead a Police Inspector in Mikang Local Government Area of Plateau State following an argument.

The duo, who were security officials on duty in the local government, had a misunderstanding which resulted in a shouting match between them before the soldier pulled the trigger, killing the policeman.

It was gathered that the problem started at about 12.30 p.m. when the inspector and the corporal began to exchange words following which their colleagues intervened and tried to pacify them.

But apparently still bitter about the hot exchange of words, the soldier reportedly went for his gun, corked it and shot the police inspector, simply identified as Doe, at close range.

One of the security men, who confirmed the shooting, said they were shocked to hear gunshots after they had pleaded with their colleagues to keep the peace and on rushing to the scene, they found the policeman on the ground.

Police spokesman in the state, DSP John Omuogbo, confirmed the incident, saying it followed an argument between two security men.

He said the army corporal had been arrested while investigations had begun into the matter. He said the suspect would be arraigned  on completion of investigations and urged the people of the area to be calm and not take the law into their hands.
