Soldiers kill mother of 7, student for taunting their colleague’s girlfriend

Some soldiers from the Nigerian Air Force have killed two residents of Mabera, Sokoto, Sokoto State, DailyNigerian reports.
According to the outlet, the crisis began when a lady, said to be the girlfriend of an officer, was taunted by youths in the neighborhood. .
Provoked by the youths’ behaviour, the lady reported the matter to her officer boyfriend, who deployed a truckload of air craftsmen to deal with the culprits. .
It was gathered that the soldiers trailed a student, Abdulsalam Lawan, who fled the siege to a nearby house, killing him and a 40-year-old mother of seven, Maryam Abdulrahman. .
They often come and brutalise us in this area. We were at a tea joint when they came last night around 8:30pm. They started by shooting sporadically and then asked the soldier’s girlfriend to point at those who taunted her. .
When she failed to identify the real culprits, they meted out frog jump punishment on us. Those who ran away were shot. At least five people sustained gunshot injuries while two people died,” a witness, Sani Mabera told DailyNigerian. .
The bodies of the victims have been deposited at Specialist Hospital, Sokoto for autopsy.
