Policeman Kills Wife, Five Others, Commits Suicide In Abeokuta




A policeman attached to the Ogun State Police Command, Corporal Sunkanmi Ogunbiyi, went on the rampage on Thursday in Abeokuta, killing six people, including his wife and a two-year-old child.

Ogunbiyi, who worked at the State Criminal Investigation Department, was said to be having matrimonial problems with his wife Oluwatosin Faremi, who was also a police corporal attached to Obantoko Police Division, Abeokuta.

Residents of the area said the policeman had been accusing his wife of infidelity.

It was learnt that Oluwatosin had packed out of her matrimonial home along with the couple’s two children to the apartment of their landlady after another round of such accusation.

H.E.B gathered that Ogunbiyi, on learning about the whereabouts of his wife, stormed the landlady’s residence around 7.50am at 67, Ifelodun Street, Obantoko, Abeokuta and opened fire on his wife.


He was also said to have shot and killed the landlady, her two-year-old child, the motorcycle rider that took him to the house and two others.

Three other tenants of the house sustained gunshot injuries during the incident. He, however, spared his children, who were also in the house.

After completing his mission, Ogunbiyi was said to have turned the gun on himself and taken his life.

Spokesman for the Ogun command, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident.
