The Nigerian Army has confirmed the killing of a soldier by a fellow soldier who also shot himself after committing the act in Chibok, Borno state.

Army spokesperson Brigadier General Sani Usman said the incident happened on Sunday.

He said a Board of Inquiry has been constituted to unravel the cause of the bizarre event and report within one week.

“The Headquarters of 26 Brigade Nigerian Army has instituted a Board of Inquiry (BOI) to unravel the circumstances surrounding the shooting incident that resulted in the death of an Officer and a Senior Non-Commission Officer (SNCO), deployed on duty at Chibok, Borno State earlier Sunday, 12th November 2017,” Usman said in a statement.

“At about 12.50pm today, the unit received a report that a Staff was seen to be drunk and misbehaving to civilians. An officer was dispatched to the scene with a view to bring [sic] him back to base. The officer did his best but the SNCO refused several entreaties to calm him and be disarmed by the superior officer.

“Unfortunately, the Staff Sergeant shot the officer dead and then killed himself. Their remains have since been evacuated to a military facility. The BOI is expected investigate the incident and promptly turn in its report and findings in one week.”
