Borno State court-martial sitting has sentenced Trooper Azunna Maduabuchi to death by firing squad who has killed his commander at 202 Battalion of the 21 Special Armoured Brigade in Bama, Lieutenant Babakaka Ngorgi.
A source explained that Maduabuchi was on Tuesday sentenced to death by firing squad after he was found guilty at the court session held at the Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri.
This is in accordance with Section 106 of the Armed Forces Act.
Maduabuchi had in July 2020 fired at least five shots at the late Ngorgi, whereas, the latter was on the telephone with his newly married wife.
Also he embarked on the shooting spree shortly after the troops returned from bscanning the environment to wade off Boko Haram insurgents.
Expect News gathered that the young officer targeted at the officer’s chest and shoot randomly to the surprise of his colleagues who were present.
“We were all shocked because we did not expect that such a thing could happen at that moment. Soldiers and officers were in a sad mood to the extent that they wanted to go and kill the shooter in the guardroom but the Brigade Commander ordered that they should not kill the guy.
“Later, we tried to verify if there were issues between them but nothing personal was established. We only found out that the soldier’s bank account had been blocked for several months so he could not collect his office allowance and salary. He had been complaining that he was also not even given a pass so he could go out. We are in a sad mood already here,” a source said.
