The young soldier identify as Trooper Azunna Maduabuchi was sentence by army Acourt-martial sitting in Borno State.
Recall that Omokoshaban report last year that a commander at 202 Battalion of the 21 Special Armoured Brigade in Bama, Lieutenant Babakaka Ngorgi was killed by a soldier while on phone talking to his newly married wife.
This, according to the court, is in accordance with Section 106 of the Armed Forces Act.
“We were all shocked because we did not expect that such a thing could happen at that moment. Soldiers and officers were in a sad mood to the extent that they wanted to go and kill the shooter in the guardroom but the Brigade Commander ordered that they should not kill the guy.
“Later, we tried to verify if there were issues between them but nothing personal was established. We only found out that the soldier’s bank account had been blocked for several months so he could not collect his office allowance and salary. He had been complaining that he was also not even given a pass so he could go out. We are in a sad mood already here,” a source said.
