By Igbaugba Ehigimetor


A 35-year old man suspect, identified as Uwaila, on Sunday shot dead his wife and two sons in Edo, accusing her of infidelity. The incident happened at Ovbiogie village in Ovia North East Local Government Area of the state.



The Commissioner of  Police in the state, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, who visited the scene of the incident, promised that the suspect would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigation into the case.



The suspect was said to have shot  through the door into the room where his wife and children ran into for safety and locked themselves in, following an argument. Residents of the community wailed almost uncontrollably when officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) came to evacuate the corpses.



Narrating what happened, the suspect who is now in police custody, said his wife accused him of having girlfriends and threatened to retaliate by going out with other men. Uwaila said he drove out of the house in anger and came back to see that his wife locked herself and his sons inside one of the rooms. The suspect  said he shot through the door, adding that in the process, the bullet hit them on the bed.
