The police in Lagos have arrested Corporal Yinka Oloko, who allegedly shot his wife dead in the Egbeda area of the state at about 10pm on Tuesday in their home.
“It was a case of an accidental discharge. The police corporal was not careful in removing his pistol from the holster. When he got home on that evening, his wife welcomed him and they went to the bedroom.“As he was undressing, he removed the gun and wanted to place it on the bed when it discharged. The bullet hit the wife’s lap. He was the one that rushed his wife to the hospital. She died before they got to the hospital. He was thereafter arrested and detained in the Ikeja Police Division although the incident happened in Egbeda.”
“The policeman has been arrested, and handed over to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, SCID, for investigation. The incident involved him and his wife. It was a sort of a discharge rather than a fight. Investigation is still ongoing.”
