Policeman Stabs Colleague To Death

The victim, who was killed in Bayelsa State’s Edepie area, is also the suspected killer’s cousin.

According to friends of the two cops, the two cousins were at a wedding where the dead cracked a joke at the table where they were seated.

It was discovered that Akpoboloukeme, who is known for being irritable, was offended by the joke and reacted violently.

According to sources, the duo were almost engaged in fisticuffs when friends stepped in and settled the two policemen.

Following the peace reached between them, the two brothers left the venue with the belief that they were going to their separate homes.

However, Akpoboloukeme, instead of going home, trailed the deceased to a secluded place and stabbed him with a dagger on the left part of the ribs which killed him instantly.

In a statement, confirming the incident, the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Asinim Butswat, said “An off-duty Police Officer stabbed his colleague with a dagger to death in Yenagoa, over a minor misunderstanding”

The incident occurred on 4th November 2021, at about 1900 hours at Edepie, Yenagoa. It was reported that the corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.

The accused suspect immediately fled the scene and attempted to flee to a nearby state before he was arrested at the Glory Land gate.

The Commissioner of Police Bayelsa State Command CP Ben Okolo has ordered the detention of the officer and a thorough investigation is underway.
