As at press time the reason for the action was yet to be known, but an eyewitness told newsmen that the deceased had a minor disagreement with one of his daughters, which led to an argument between them.
He said, “As the argument was ongoing, he rushed into his room in annoyance and locked the door from the back.

“When neighbours heard the gunshot, they rushed to the room, forced the door open and saw him in a pool of blood.”
Meanwhile the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph has confirmed the incident.
