Nigerian Army Reportedly Killed A Passenger In Abuja

A Nigerian Army Officer, Abubakar Idris, attached to the presidential guard brigade reportedly opened fire on some motorcyclists in Abuja, killing a passenger on the spot.

It was gathered that the incident happened around 1AM on Monday, January 2, 2023, close to a bridge along Aguiyi Ironsi way, Asokoro, where Idris and his colleagues were stationed for guard duty.

The presidential brigade officers were on duty when Idris sighted some motorcyclists approaching them. The army officer tried to stop one of the bike men who was carrying a passenger, but in the process, he opened fire, killing the passenger at the spot, while the bike man and the other motorcyclists fled according to The Punch.

A source revealed that the army officer and his colleagues also fled the scene after killing the passenger. The source went on to say that around 3AM that same morning, some police officers got to the scene and took the corpse to the Asokoro District Hospital for an Autopsy.

The spokesperson for the brigade, Abakpa Godfrey, when contacted said he can't comment on the incident with the excuse that he was on a pass and just got back to Abuja meaning he wasn't aware of the incident.
