Finally in Nigeria, a soldier has committed suicide after killing three colleagues including Sam Oladapo, the Commander, Forward Operating Base stationed in Rabah local government area of Sokoto State.
The soldier, Nwabodo Chinoso, a Lance Corporal, was posted to the 223 battalion in Zuru Kebbi State but was deployed to Rabah.
A signal sent to the Army headquarters and seen by journalists reveals that Mr. Chinoso also shot dead Iliyasu Inusa, a Sergeant Major and Attahiru Mohammed, a private.
According to the signal, Chinoso went to the military commander’s official accommodation in Rabah town and shot Oladapo, unprovoked.
When two other soldiers, Messrs Inusa and Mohammed tried protecting the commander, Chinoso shot them too with his rifle and later shot himself.
