Retired Police boss kills self, wife and son in Ogun state
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, neighbours told police that the couple fought regularly.
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.
