Kiyawa said the shooter has been arrested.

He added that the state police commissioner, Sama’ila Dikko, had directed that the suspect should undergo tests to ascertain his mental health status.

“There was a misunderstanding between the two officers and as a result, the Inspector fired a shot at the Sergeant.

“During our preliminary investigation, the said Inspector said he didn’t even know how he shot his colleague but he could remember that the deceased was laughing at him. So he was out of his senses and committed this act,” Kiyawa said.
