Nigerian Soldier Kills Captain, 4 Others, Then Kills Himself

A Nigerian soldier, Silas Ninyo (93NA/36/2608), has allegedly shot dead a captain, who had attempted to stop him from beating innocent civilians in Chibok, Borno State.

According to reports, the shocking incident is said to have occurred on Sunday afternoon after a team of soldiers, led by one Captain T. Mani (N/14430), was providing security for worshippers during Sunday service in Chibok and received a distress call that Staff Sergeant Ninyo was beating civilians for unknown reasons.

Captain Mani, accompanied by soldiers, moved to the scene and freed the civilians. But while trying to disarm the errant soldier, Captain Mani was shot dead by Staff Sergeant Ninyo, who later shot himself dead after killing four others. Very unfortunate. A graphic pic...

No one knows what actually came over the said staff sergeant, to have resorted to such a terrible act.
