A soldier, identified as Corporal Abayomi Ebun has crushed, with a car, the Director of Finance of the Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre (NAFRC) and one of the finest officers in the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General O.A. James, to death.
The incident happened on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, around 10:30p.m, as Brigadier General James was reportedly walking to his residence inside the NAFRC barracks in Abuja.
According to a witness, the deceased, before his death on Tuesday, sustained injuries, after Corporal Ebun, who was believed to be drunk, hit him with a car.
“The general was trekking to his apartment inside the Barracks when he was hit and knocked down by the drunk soldier.”
“The soldier also resides inside the barracks and was seen driving recklessly before hitting the senior officer,” the witness revealed.
It was also gathered that the General was rushed to the NAFRC Medical Centre after the incident where he was confirmed dead, as the army corporal has been arrested and detained by NAFRC provost marshals.
However, the Nigerian Army is yet to comment on the incident.
