Ikoli is believed to have shot himself in the early hours of Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at his residence in the Apapa area of Lagos, a Channels TV report said.
The report quoted a statement from the Headquarters of the Western Naval Command as explaining that gunshots were heard near Teikumo’s house and when his room was opened, the Naval officer was found dead.
“The Navy did not explain what could have led to the alleged suicide but it adds in its statement that the police have been invited and investigations have commenced into the incident,” the report said.
