Cosmos Ugwu, a police officer attached to the Imo State Police Command was reportedly shot to death by his girlfriend on Tuesday, December 26th, 2023.
The unfortunate incident occurred on boxing day when gunshots were heard from the apartment occupied by the late cop with his girlfriend at about 6:30 PM of the faithful day after a serious disagreement between Ugwu and his girlfriend, who is identified as Amanda Uchechi Ugo, a native of Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State.
Officers on counter duty were said to have heard three gunshots from the room of the deceased officer.
A police report showed "When police officers ran into the room to see what was going on, they found Corporal Ugwu lying in a pool of his blood. The girl shot him three times in his chest and his left hand. He was rushed immediately to Evergreen Hospital in Ezinihitte, where he was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.
Although officers are still worrying about how the lady was able to successfully operate the riffle, Police further revealed "The deceased had a serious fight with his girlfriend, and in the course of the altercation, the girl reached for his rifle, pulled the trigger and shot him three times.
The command had a belief that Amanda was taught how to operate the riffle by Ugwu.
“Nobody knows what went wrong between the two, but how the girl was able to use a police rifle successfully is still a surprise to many. Maybe, Ugwu was the one who taught her,” the Police Command worries.
The remains of the late police officer have been deposited at the Obizi mortuary while Amanda has been arrested and detained for investigation.
Confirming the unfortunate incident, the Police Public Relations Officer in Imo State, Henry Okoye, “Yes, the incident happened. A policeman was allegedly shot dead by his girlfriend.
