A promising soldier said to be a member of the Nigerian army special force commando has been reportedly killed in controversial circumstances.
The late Mohammed Adamu
A young Nigerian soldier identified as L/Cpl Mohammed Adamu (Dan Fulani), has reportedly been shot and killed by some of his colleagues on duty in one of the numerous brothels in Maiduguri, according to a friend, Jack Vince.
Some reports in the media had alleged that Adamu died during a battle with Boko Haram members, however, Vince took to social media to blow the whistle over his alleged death.
He wrote: "This soldier, L/Cpl Mohammed Adamu (Dan Fulani), grew up in my neighbourhood. A pretty young and vibrant lad. His parents and siblings still live in the Community. His mother fondly called him Baba Abba. Few days ago, news of his death reached us. The sad event came as a rude shock. The mood of everyone who knew him has been that of gloom ever since. The eldest of several young children and proverbial backbone of his parents.
Grapevine has it that he was, allegedly, shot and killed by some of his colleagues on duty in one of the numerous brothels in Maiduguri. That's the much we heard. We hope concerned stakeholders are doing the needful to get to the bottom of the incident which is still very much shrouded in mystery.
May God grant his grieving family fortitude to bear the great loss and may his soul rest in peace. Amin."
The new twist has caused a controversy with many people asking the authorities to look into the matter to ascertain what truly happened to the young soldier.
