A police inspector (name withheld) has reportedly committed suicide in Maiduguri, Borno State capital.

The late officer was attached to the Gwange division of the Borno Police Command.

Community sources told Daily Trust that the inspector was looking healthy when he was last seen three days ago.

It is unclear why the policeman took the action. 

His neighbours at Layin Bayan, Wulari Jerusalem area of Maiduguri raised the alarm on Saturday morning when they noticed his door was locked from behind and a strange odour was emanating from there.

The matter was immediately reported to the Metro division of the Borno Police Command and some officers were deployed to the scene.

“It was early this morning that people in the compound observed strange odor emanating from his apartment; his door was shut from behind.

“The men of police from Metro and Gwange Divisions respectively came to break the door and his lifeless body was found on the floor of his bedroom. They are currently in the compound,” the source said.

As of the time of filing this report, the police authorities have not issued any statement on the incident.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Borno, ASP Kenneth Daso, did not answer calls when Daily Trust attempted to reach him.

The telephone line rang out repeatedly.
