One of the sources said, It was a sad incident, the Army Brigade officers were on duty last night (Sunday/Monday) when Idris sighted some motorcyclists approaching them close to the bridge.

The Officer was trying to stop one of the bike men, who was carrying a passenger, but in the process he opened fire on them, killing the passenger immediately, while the bike man and other motorcyclists fled for their lives.

An Eye witness said that the soldiers fled the scene, leaving the corpse until the arrival of the police.

Another source said not long after it happened, the soldiers left the scene and abandoned the corpse, later the police officers got to the scene around 3 am and took the corpse to Asokoro District Hospital for an autopsy.

Abakpa Godfrey the spokesperson for the brigade, said he was not aware of the incident.

Abakpa said, he has nothing to say and he said I can’t comment on that for now, I was actually on a pass and I just got back to Abuja, so I am not aware of it.
