A Nigerian army staff sergeant, Silas Ninyo (93NA/36/2608) has shot dead his superior, Captain T. Mani today, Sunday, November 12. 

According to the report by Sahara Reporters, Captain Mani stopped Sergeant Ninyo from beating innocent civilians in Chibok, Borno state after responding to distress calls from locals. 

On getting to the scene, Mani reportedly attempted to disarm the sergeant, but was killed in the process, while the soldier killed himself and injured four others around. 

“A team of soldiers, led by one Captain T. Mani (N/14430), was providing security for worshippers during Sunday service in Chibok and received a distress call that Staff Sergeant Ninyo was beating civilians for unknown reasons. 

“Captain Mani, accompanied by soldiers, moved to the scene and freed the civilians. But while trying to disarm the errant soldier, Captain Mani was shot dead by Staff Sergeant Ninyo, who later shot himself dead after killing four others,” a situation report by the Nigerian army said. 

According to Sahara Reporters, the corpses of both soldiers have been deposited at a military hospital in Yola, Adamawa state, adding that troops are on red alert to avert any untoward reaction following the incident. 

The incident comes two days after a Brigadier-General, Lym Hassan was being lined up for prosecution by a military court-martial for false rumours. 

According to the report, the top military officer claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari had died when the he was hospitalized in London.
