A Nigerian Army officer attached to the Presidential Guard Brigade, Abubakar Idris, has opened fire on some motorcyclists, killing a passenger.

The tragic incident occurred on Monday at about 1:00a.m close to a bridge along Aguiyi Ironsi Way, Asokoro, Stonix News gathered.

Witnesses said the Army Brigade officers were on duty night of Sunday/Monday when Idris sighted some motorcyclists approaching them close to the bridge.

The trigger-happy officer, it was gathered, perhaps out of fear, opened fire on the motorcycles riders, killing a passenger.

A source revealed that the soldiers immediately fled the scene, abandoning the corpse until the arrival of the police around 3:00 a.m.

The deceased body was taken to the Asokoro District Hospital, Abuja, for an autopsy.

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

“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,” Abakpa was quoted as saying.
