The Nation reported that the army captain who was attached to 353 Artillery Regiment, Ojo Barracks in Lagos and with army number N/13600, was traveling in his Honda Accord car when he ran into a blockade mounted by the armed bandits.
It was alleged that he was travelling from Lagos to the Armed Forces Command and Staff College in Jaji, Kaduna State, to participate in 2020 junior officers course.
He died at the scene after being shot by the bandits who subsequently abducted his mother and wife. Other officers traveling in other vehicles behind him narrowly escaped the attack as they maneuvred and sped away from the scene.
Family of the deceased claimed his corpse on Tuesday July 7, after it was deposited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Lokoja.
