Sergent Thomas Agada of Nasarawa State Police Command is dead. He committed suicide after shooting his wife and the maid.
An eyewitness account shows that the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday at Masaka in Karu Local Government Area of the state. The command’s spokesman, Mr. Kennedy Idirisu, told newsmen in Lafia
that late Agada served at the Police command in the FCT, but resided at
Masaka, where the incident occurred.
Idirisu explained that before killing himself, the deceased had shot
and injured his wife and maid at their shop around De Memories Hotel in
Masaka. He said the wife and maid were currently receiving treatment at the
Asokoro General Hospital in the FCT, adding that investigation had begun
to ascertain the motive behind the shooting. “We cannot say for sure now what could have led to the dastardly act
but we believe that the wife, currently being treated would be of great
help to our investigation, once she stabilises,” Idirisu said.
