An eyewitness disclosed that upon arrival at the school with her child, the police officer accosted the woman and discussed with her before shooting her twice.
He added that the policeman immediately shot himself to death.
Another eyewitness who saw the incident from a nearby building confirmed the incident.
A man, who claimed to be a property owner, said the policeman and the woman hired an apartment from him some weeks back and had been behaving like love birds until they started having problems lately.
“They have been having issues since five days ago. When they rented the house, we were always happy with the way they showed love to each other.
“Some say the police officer was a man friend of the woman, but they had been quarrelling for the past few days now,” the man, who declined to be named, said.
Confirming the incident, the Kwara State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, said the command has begun an investigation into the matter.
Okesanmi said while details of the incident were still sketchy, he was told that it was a case of a love affair gone sour.
