Police Inspector strangles colleague, attempted to steal Service riffle arrested
Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have arrested a serving Inspector who attempted to kill his colleague on duty in Kafanchan and cart away his rifle.
The Command also busted a rail line vandalization operation, impounded the conveyance truck and recovered exhibits.
Spokesperson of the Police Command, DSP Muhammad Jalige in a statement, explained that “the attention of the Kaduna State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video on the social media space where it is alleged that a serial police killer who is also a Police Officer has been arrested.
“However, in order to constrict the flow of misinformation, the Command wish to set the records straight.”
“A distress situation on the 16th June, 2023 at about 1930 hours occurred at the Police Mobile Force base of 62 Squadron Kafanchan, Kaduna where a certain Inspector Moses Paul attempted to kill his duty partner Inspector Simnawa Paul.”
“The incident which transpired while the two were on duty at the said base led Inspector Moses Paul to strangle, using a rope, the neck of his unsuspecting colleague. The victim was however rescued by two other Police Officers whose attention were drawn by his cries.”
“Preliminary inquiries reveals the primary motive was in attempt to cart away Inspector Simnawa Paul’s rifle while the remote cause of action will be ascertained at the end of the full scale investigation during which the culprit will be facing both disciplinary and legal proceedings,” the Command stated.
