A newly married military officer was shot dead by his colleague in Borno state following a misunderstanding.
Lieutenant Babakaka Shehu Ngorgi of the 202 Battalion, who got married in December 2019, was talking to his wife Hauwa Alhaji Kolomi when one of his colleagues shot him from the back six times in Bama, Borno.
After shooting him, the attacker was reportedly heard screaming, “I have achieved my aim.”
It is not yet clear why the soldier killed Lt Ngorgi, who is his senior in the army and on the battlefield.
Friends have gone on various social media platforms to mourn Ngorgi.
