The family and neighbours of David Agholor, a retired Chief Superintendent of Police and former Officer-in-Charge of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Enugu State Police Command, have been left seeking explanations after he shot himself to death for no clear reason.
The retired SARS commander, a resident of Sharaton Estate, Olaogun, in the Ijoko area of Ogun State, was said to have called his eldest daughter, handed her the keys to his two houses before going behind one of the houses situated on the same piece of land to shoot himself in the head.
The incident reportedly occurred last Thursday.
Agholor, according to the family, had no history of depression that could have triggered the action, but received a strange call on Wednesday evening.
This was said to have caused him to behave out of character, which led to enquiries from his family members if everything was fine.
He was said to have responded in the affirmative, before committing the act.
“He started behaving unusually on Wednesday evening. When they asked him what was wrong with him, he said he was okay. When he woke up on Thursday, he went to his wife’s bedroom to greet her.
“Afterwards, he had a bath and dressed up. He looked corporate. They asked him where he was going to, but he did not talk. He called his first daughter and handed over the keys to his houses to her. He has two houses on a plot of land. He and his family members lived in one of the houses.
“The other is an uncompleted building, but it has been roofed. He went to the back of the uncompleted building and the next thing the family heard was a gunshot. He shot himself in the head,” The Punch quoted a source close to the family as saying.
The Ogun State Police Command said investigations were ongoing to determine the cause of the incident.
