PHOTOS: Identity Of Nigerian Army Captain Shot Dead By Female Soldier, Nkiru Okonkwo In Adamawa.

It was really a chaos yesterday in Adamawa when a captain was shit by his Junior colleague who is on assignment.

Can it be that she was trying to protect herself or it was fine out of freedom or beef?

According to reports, Nkiru had ordered all motorists returning home during the curfew to turn back, but they explained that they were workers on essential duty.

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri last week imposed the curfew after hoodlums broke into a government warehouse and looted several items, including palliatives meant to cushion the effect of fuel subsidy.

The soldier was said to be adamant despite the explanation.

“Some people stopped at the checkpoint and explained themselves as workers on essential duties, but the female soldier insisted they must turn back,” a security officer at the scene had told journalists.

 

The security officer added,

“A captain came forward to intervene. Unfortunately, she had already cocked her rifle, so she just fired and killed him accidentally.”

 

It was learnt that the army officer was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Yola, where he was confirmed dead, while the female soldier was arrested and whisked away by soldiers who arrived at the scene.

The deceased colleagues and a Major in the army said,

“The late officer is Captain Bitrus Sini, I have known him for over five years, a very gentle officer. Unfortunately, he got married last December”

We’re sending out condolences to the families and the concerned bodies!

Can this be due to the way the senior officers treat the lesser ranks? A proper investigation must be conducted.
