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.
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.”
