Six mobile police officers have been assassinated in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, by a police officer known as Sergeant Bello.
The incident occurred within the police college quarters of Borno Police Headquarters in Maiduguri, according to individuals who talked with Daily Trust.
Sergeant Bello is presently being held at the State Criminal Investigation Department, according to a senior officer familiar with the situation (SCID).
Bello had a quarrel with his wife, according to an anonymous family member who spoke about the event, and neighbors sought to intercede, but he was not ready to settle the matter.
The source said, “He and his wife have been having issues for some time now; we tried to settle it amicably, but he refused.
“The wife told her parents that the sergeant assaulted her; she moved her things out of his house. The wife left due to severe maltreatment by her husband.
“He started shooting and threatened to kill everyone. Unfortunately, he shot people, but six mobile policemen died and two others are currently receiving treatment at Specialist Hospital.
“He razed down two blocks of eight rooms in the process and also shot his father-in-law.”
