A trigger-happy soldier has killed an army officer and himself in Chibok, Borno State following attempts by the officer to stop him from alleged professional misconduct.

Sources in Chibok said soldier, a staff sergeant, with the Nigerian Army was reported to his commander for allegedly assaulting and flogging some civilians in the town. This prompted one of his superiors, a captain to ascertain the claim and possibly stop him. The incident occurred on Sunday, the source said.

“The captain found out that the soldier was actually flogging people and assaulting them. So he decided to disarm the soldier but the staff sergeant pulled the trigger and fired the captain. The officer slumped,” a Chibok resident who pleaded anonymity told Daily Sun.

Another resident said the soldier fired the second shot on the captain who was already gasping for breath. The soldier then fled having realised the officer was dead.

While fleeing the scene of the shooting, the soldier reportedly shot himself too and died.

A military source not authorised to speak on the matter also corroborated the account of the residents, describing it as unfortunate.

So, this problem is this deep?
An officer can no longer control junior ranks to restrain them from civilian abuse?
Nigeria needs to take a close and deep look at this problem, because now an officer in dead and it sets a very bad and dangerous precedent.
There is a need for a massive and committed reorientation campaign and weeding out of elements within the military who cannot abide by the laws of the land, especially the constitution and the laws binding military duty and conduct.
Some people think that the military is a place that gives them total freedom to commit crimes against civilians with impunity.

Maybe a drastic measure like immediate sack and dismissal without honor and entitlement for any military person abusing civilians will rein in these rogue soldiers who see the civilians are prey for easy pickings.
We need to fix this problem in our military before it spreads.
