Buhari's Top Aide Shoots Himself To Death - No one can really tell what happened

A member of President Muhamamdu Buhari’s Presidential Probe Committee, and Fleet Commander of the Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral Daniel Ikoli, was found dead, at his Apapa, Lagos residence, on Wednesday.

It was believed that Admiral Ikoli shot himself dead, and was found in the pool of his own blood.
It was gathered, that the Naval Officer left the office on Tuesday afternoon, after complaining of not feeling too well.
It was further gathered, that the deceased was suffering from depression, caused by the high dollar rate and unavailability of Foreign Exchange for his children’s tuition abroad.

According to a close Aide to the deceased, a boy who lives at his home, claimed he heard gunshot from Ikoli’s room and took cover. 

He said: “The boy said he heard gunshot, and when he did, he took cover. His wife is in Abuja, and his children school abroad. His Orderly and Naval Assistant (NA), usually go after dropping him.
“The bullet hit him on the chest. Three bullets were seen in his room. No one can really tell what happened, but the position he was seen suggests he might have been scared of something or someone.
“He was a nice and intelligent Officer. He was the one who spearheaded the renovations at BEECROFT, when he was Commander. It’s a sad news really.”
Contacted, the Command’s Information Officer, Lieutenant Commander Chinwe Umar, said the Police have been invited for investigation.
She said: “In the early hours of Wednesday, April 5, gunshots were heard in the vicinity where Rear Admiral Teikumo Daniel Ikoli resides, in Apapa.
“When his room was opened, he was found dead. Police have been invited and investigation is ongoing. When the situation is clearer, an update would be given.”
