Drunken policeman Commits Suicide After killing twins, Friend


A drunken policeman, Stephen James, attached to Mopol 22,Ikeje, has committed suicide after killing a twins, Taiwo and Kehinde Oyekunle and their friend, simply identified as Jeje, on Boxing Day in Lagos.

The tragic incident happened at Paulson Hotel at 8, Anibaba Street, Iyana Bus Stop at Ketu where the twins who were in their thirties visited with Jeje to celebrate the latter’s birthday around 4.00pm.

According to eyewitness, no sooner had they ordered for drinks than gun-wielding James who was on duty at the hotel barged in on them and threatened to kill them if they did not buy him drinks.

It was said that James was a drunk and had also threatened other merry makers in the hotel.

He however carried out the threats despite the twins and their friend’s promise to buy him drinks but urged him to comport himself with dignity.

If Taiwo, Kehinde and Jeje’s promise whetted James’ appetite, the advice to comport himself infuriated him, and shot them dead one after the other before committing suicide.

It was further gathered that the deceased twins lost their father last year and were the only children of their mother.
