The Nigeria Army has explained why a junior officer identified Uzonna Maduabuchi, who killed newly married military senior officer Lieutenant Babakaka Shehu Ngorg, in Bama, Borno State.
Maduabuchi, who was suffering from depression because his allowances were withheld and account blocked, on Tuesday, shoot Lieutenant Babakaka Shehu Ngorgi, his superior at 202 Battalion of the 21 Special Armoured Brigade in Bama, from behind, six times when talking to his wife.
The victim according to report, got married in December 2019 and was looking forward to raise his family before the incident.
A source said he over heard the attacker, saying “I have achieved my aim” after shooting Ngorg dead.
However, it is not clear whether Lieutenant Babakaka Shehu Ngorg, was responsible for Maduabuchi plight or not, but according to Army sources, Maduabuchi, a 16NA Regular Intake, had complained several times about his allowances not paid and his right to pass denied.
Insidenaija gathered that Ngorg, was shot on the chest six times, shortly after the troops returned from scanning the environment to wade off Boko Haram Terrorists.
“We were all shocked because we did not expect such a thing could happen at that moment.
“Soldiers and officers were in sad mood to the extent that they wanted to go and get the shooter killed in the guardroom but the Brigade Commander gave order that they should not kill the guy.
“Later, we now tried to verify if there were issues between them but nothing personal was established.
“We only found out that the soldier’s account has been blocked for several months without collecting office allowance and salary.
“He has been complaining that he is also not allowed to go on pass. It’s painful and sad mood already here.
‘’May Almighty Allah spare our lives for future purpose and safety in this job and after May God be with us,” a soldier, who allegedly witnessed the incident said.
