A police officer, Constable Peace Agbemafo has shot and killed herself with an AK 47 assault rifle, behind closed doors, in the Garu-Tempane District of the Upper East region.
Quality FM’s Ayaaba Abdul Aziz reported that the incident happened around 2:pm Monday afternoon.
He indicated that, the deceased law enforcer was found lying in a pool of blood from her head on the floor of his room after she supposedly shot through the right side of her neck.
She was found still holding the AK 47 assault rifle when police officers forced the door open.
Two empty shells, a knife and a rope tied to the ceiling were also found during a police inspection of the room.
The 31-year-old police officer was expected to be on duty at the GN Bank branch at Garu that same day but had failed to show up.
The manager of the branch, after no police officer had reported for duty, called the Garu-Tempane Police Station, expressing worry about the absence of police security at the bank.
The situation prompted a search that eventually led to the horrifying discovery at her residence.
Police has begun investigations into the unfortunate matter.
