Chinoso also shot the FOB Rabah Command Sergeant Major (CSM), Sgt. Iliyasu Inusa, and another private soldier, Attahiru Mohammed, after he had killed Oladapo.

 

After shooting his colleagues, Chinoso thereafter committed suicide by shooting himself.

But credible military sources in Sokoto, however, could not ascertain the mental stability of the trigger-happy soldier.

One of the sources told News Week Nigeria: “At the moment, the Commander 8 Division Garrison and Commander 26 Battalion are at the location.

“They have made efforts to move the corpse of the slain personnel to the Usmanu Dan Fodio Teaching Hospital, even as they have since ordered an investigation into the cause of the incident.”

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a top military officer in Sokoto, said, “The soldier who killed his FOB Commander at Rabah, and two other colleagues of his, may perhaps be battling operational and psychological stress.

 

“It is something that is common with military personnel. But that’s not a justification for any of our soldiers to go haywire. Definitely, necessary action will be taken to forestall a recurrence.”
