An officer of the Liberia National Police has allegedly committed suicide in Pouh Town, Grand Gedeh County.

Officer Sammy Seoh allegedly shot and killed himself due to constant disagreement between him and his detail commander, Albert Shad.

In a letter allegedly written by the deceased, officer Pouh complained of continued misunderstanding between him and his boss.

Our correspondent gathered the disagreement existed between the two men even while they were assigned at the Putu District police detail.

An eyewitness account said Seoh fired a warning shot and threatened to shoot anyone who attempted to take the gun from him.

As people began running helter-skelter Seoh set the barrel of the gun under his cheek and fired it with his toe killing himself instantly.

Grand Gedeh Police Commander Prince Gballeh who refused to release the letter admitted officer Seoh allegedly committed suicide.

According Mr. Gballeh, police are investigating the incident to establish the cause of Seoh’s alleged action.

The incident happened during the morning hours of Thursday.
