Barely seven months after he was promoted from the rank of a commodore to a rear admiral, Daniel Teikumo Ikoli, an officer of the Nigerian Navy, has died in his residence in Apapa GRA, Lagos.
He was said to have shot himself in the chest after firing two previous shots that hit the wall and the television set in his house.
During a visit to his house in Apapa, it was as quiet as a grave yard, as no soul was found there, although some of his neighbours said his body had since been removed and taken to the morgue.
Initially, the navy had suspected it was an assassination attempt going by the deceased’s previous paranoia about assassination threats during his tenure as a member of the arms deal probe.
However, after the police were invited and they did a sweep of the apartment and the scene of his death, preliminary investigations revealed that he had shot himself.
