Policeman kills self, wife, 5 others over marital dispute in Abeokuta

A police officer in Ogun State today Thursday march 27th shot and killed seven people including his own wife, a 2 year old, and himself, Premium Times reports. The full report below...
Police Corporal Sunkanmi Ogunbiyi, attached to State Criminal Investigation Department of the Ogun State Police Command, went berserk on Thursday morning in Abeokuta.
The rampaging policeman was said to be having matrimonial problems with Oluwatosin, his wife, who is also a police corporal attached to Obantoko police station in Abeokuta, the Ogun capital.
According to neighbours, following a quarrel between the couple, Oluwatosin moved, alongside their two children, to the house of a neighbour, their landlady.
Witnesses said Mr. Ogunbiyi arrived the landlady’s residence at about 7:02 a.m. and immediately opened fire on his wife. He also shot and killed the landlady, a 2-year-old toddler, and three others. He did not shoot at his children, who were also in the house.

Three other tenants also sustained gunshot injuries during the incident which occurred at 67, Ifelodun Street, Akingbala area of Obantoko, Abeokuta. The injured were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where they are now receiving treatment.

Some neighbours told PREMIUM TIMES that the police corporal had in the past warned the landlady not to harbour his wife and children whenever the couple had any misunderstanding.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, later visited the scene to assess the situation.

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement, confirmed the incident.
He said that Mr. Ogunbiyi and his wife had been having ‘domestic conflicts’ before Thursday’s killings.

“The Ogun State Police Command has deemed it necessary to react to the killing of six persons by a police Corporal Sunkanmi Ogunbiyi attached to the Ogun State Police Command,” the spokesperson said in the statement.

“The unfortunate incident occurred this morning Thursday 27th March, 2014 at 0758hrs when the said corporal, who had been having domestic conflicts with his wife, shot and killed six persons, with his rifle, including his wife, Woman Corporal Oluwatosin Faremi, the landlady in the house, a two-year-old baby girl and two males and one female, while another three persons sustained injuries and receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, Idi Aba, Abeokuta. The said corporal, having killed these persons, shot himself dead immediately.

“The Commissioner of Police Ogun State, CP Ikemefuna Okoye has described the incident as unfortunate; and has visited the scene with other senior police officers in the command to assess the situation and sympathize with the relations of the deceased and members of the Akingbala Ifelodun Estate, Eleweran Area, Abeokuta, where the incident took place,” he added.

Mr. Adejobi said “The Command has therefore commenced thorough forensic investigation into the killing and promised to make sure justice is done in the matter.”

“ The commissioner of police however appeals to the general public to perceive the incident as one of the unfortunate social mishaps and not to judge the police with the incident, as the police is committed to protection of lives and property and will not tolerate any act capable of trampling on fundamental human rights of the citizens of Ogun State.”

The landlady probably thought she was making peace and shielding d oppressed now she paid with her life!! That policeman knew what he was doing because he didn't aim at his children, he wanted to punish his wife ,landlady and probably others that helped his wife.

some women can so push men to the wall that they can take irrational actions.
very few men can handle anger management.
my ex had so many times pushed me to the extreme that I have had thoughts of killing her to have peace. but I learnt to be able to control my anger with dis * inner peace *. lesson to the ladies : don't push ur man to the extreme, not all guys have anger management capabilities. RIP to all involved. - X2dz here

Be careful in ways you handle cases with 9erian police,If a police man can kill himself and his wife den who your life is nothing in d eyes of Any Nigerian police

Anonymous said...

The Curse OOU students rained on Sunkanmi is enough for him to misbehave. Looking at it from anoda angle, this is kinda thing dat happens wen a lady uses charm to forcefully make a man marry her. He won't be able to think of leaving her when she's misbehaving. As for d landlord, minding one's business is d best, y should u be encouraging a wife to always pack of d house anytime there's misunderstanding? Dats common to most ABK single mothers, they don't see anything wrong in moving from one marriage to anoda. Love alone can't make a good marriage, no one is perfect, we just av to look for someone we can tolerate his/her funny acts. No excuse is enough for anyone to hurt anoda person not to talk of killing.

Great OOU students/alumni…especially those that graduated between 2004 and 2008. Do you remember the terror squad that never let us rest? They stupidly exercised power on the innocent and defenseless students in the name of being in uniform. They extorted and oppressed us for no good reasons. And each time they did, we uttered different kinds of curses on them and their lineage; even the ones unborn. Now I believe and I’m convinced that there is power in the TONGUE of MAN….if you graduated within or around the years I stated earlier, then you will be conversant with these names; ACTOR, SUNKANMI AND IGWE…I hope you all remembered what happened to ACTOR?...So who’s next?....RIP to the innocent ones that died…..Do good always…

Really i remember this guy back then in OOU, He did many bad things back then in the name of a police officer.RIP though
