The son, who witnessed the incident, said: “It was like a joke. When they started quarreling, my father said he would shoot my mom if she did not stop arguing with him. She couldn’t believe him and continue to argue with him.

“All of a sudden, I heard a gunshot. I ran to my mom to take her to a nearby hospital, when I heard the second shot. This time, it was my father that shot himself on the head. He died instantly.”

A neigbhour who also confirmed the incident said: “We heard gunshots from the house and we quickly called the emergency number. Immediately the policemen arrived at the residence at Kigo Road, they took the injured wife to the hospital because she was shot in the eyes.

“The dead body of the husband was lying on the ground. We had to take his body to the Barau Dikko mortuary. It was really a sad situation. Only God knows what could have pushed him into such an act as we all know him as a gentleman.”
