Friends of the two policemen said the two cousins attended a marriage ceremony where the deceased cracked a joke at the table where they were seated.

It was learnt that Akpoboloukeme who is said to be short-tempered didn’t feel happy about the joke and reacted in a violent manner.

Sources said they were almost engaged in fisticuffs when friends stepped in and settled the two policemen.

It was further gathered that after the peace between the two policemen was reached, the two brothers left the venue with belief that they were going to their separate homes.

But sources said the vengeance hungry Akpoboloukeme instead of going home, trailed the deceased to a secluded place and stabbed him with a dagger on the left part of the ribs which killed him instantly.

In a statement, confirming the incident, the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Asinim Butswat, said “An off-duty Police Officer stabbed his colleague with a dagger to death in Yenagoa, over a minor misunderstanding”

The incident occurred on 4th November 2021, at about 1900 hours at Edepie, Yenagoa. It was reported that the corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.

The accused suspect immediately fled the scene and attempted to flee to a nearby state before he was arrested at the Glory Land gate.

The Commissioner of Police Bayelsa State Command CP Ben Okolo has ordered the detention of the officer and a thorough investigation is underway.
