Police Officer Opens Fire on Colleagues, then Gets Himself Shot Dead

It is now evident that not only civilians are victims of the trigger-happy nature of Nigerian policemen. Sometimes, they also suffer from their own penchant for indiscriminate shooting.

The above statement is borne out of an incident which took place in Adamawa State on Tuesday where a police officer at the Michika Divisional Police Headquarters of the state was on Tuesday shot dead after he shot two of his colleagues who are now receiving treatment in the hospital.

Muhammed Ibrahim, the state’s police spokesperson, confirmed the incident, saying the shooter, whose name was given as Abba Gana, allegedly opened fire on his colleagues without any reason. Following Abba Gana’s resistance of arrest, however, he was shot dead by officers of the state’s special anti- robbery patrol, ‘Operation Tsaro’.

In the words of the police spokesperson, “It’s an unfortunate incident this morning, one of our policemen who signed for a rifle for duty, turned around and opened fire on his colleagues who are now receiving treatment in the hospital.”

This is not the first time an incident of this nature would be happening in the state. Sometime ago, a police officer at the Police Divisional Headquarters in Gombi Local Government Area of the state also went berserk, shooting three of his colleagues to death before killing himself.


  1. Seems everybobd in Nigeria has a king sized grudge about everybody and anything. I think all Nigerians should endeavour to visit the psychiatrist at least once every month for mental evaluation. When policemen start shooting themselves to death. How are we safe?

  2. Do You need national anthem to know that you are an animal? A !!mammal!! at that? Don’t you know anger is a mammalian virtue? Why does it irritate you so when ”THE POLICE” is mentioned? Is there any police officer you know that is from England? Are they not a product of the society you live in? Do you even know if a boko haram on uniform is proving his loyalty? Dear mammal(abi na reptile you bi?) change your attitude. Stop labeling and start re-branding. I assume your name is farouk lawan(abi ur fada follo for pention fund?).

  3. Epke Lion its clear you are an animal even goin by ur name, you and your family belong in the forest. Maybe you r a policeman abi? U r a goat so who asked u to join police? U foolish goat come and lick my nyash if u don’t have anythin doin, YES the police are ill trained and an aberration to the society bcos you have a weapon is not an excuse to shoot others even ur colleagues.
