By Daily Sun on February 4, 2014

A trigger-happy soldier yesterday in Agbado in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, went berserk and allegedly shot his colleague over an argument.

He also killed a  32-year- old  tricyclist, identified as Sunday Samuel.

Daily Sun gathered that trouble started in Agbado, a border town at about 10 am when a  group of soldiers stormed the tricycles park  in the area to allegedly extort money.

During an argument that ensued between the soldiers and the tricyclists, a soldier (name withheld) allegedly shot  Samuel dead over his alleged  refusal to pay.

The killer-soldier  also reportedly shot  his colleague who had  challenged him  for shooting Samuel and thereafter attempted to run away before  the long arm of the law caught up with him.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the incident, said the soldiers involved had been arrested  and normalcy has returned to the area.

“We confirm that the incident happened. But, Lagos and Ogun state commands are handling the matter. We have begun the investigation and we will fish out the perpetrators of the act.”
