A Police officer identified as Sergeant Basharu Alhassan was shot dead at Warawa Divisional Police Headquarters in Kano.
Daily Report Nigeria gathered that Sergeant Basharu was shot dead by one Inspector Ya’u Yakubu, who was a colleague to the deceased at the division.
Spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, Abdullahi Kiyawa said the deceased was confirmed dead by doctors after being rushed to Wudil General Hospital.
The state commissioner of police, CP Sama’ila Dikko has directed that the suspected killer be subjected to medical test to ascertain his mental fitness.

“There was misunderstanding between the two officers and as a result, the Inspector fired a shot at the Sergeant.
“On our preliminary investigations, the said Inspector said he didn’t even know how he shot his colleague and he could remember that the deceased was laughing at him. So he was out of his sense and committed this act.”
