A 34-year-old man has been shot dead by a soldier in Obigbo, Rivers State.

The victim simply identified as Chibuzo aka Mighty was shot after trying to intervene in the case of another man who was undergoing severe torture in the hands of the soldiers.

The sad event occurred in the early hours of Monday, September 17th.

A source told Bounce News that one of the soldiers slapped the deceased for daring to question the rationale behind the excessive manhandling of a fellow civillian.

However, before the victim could respond appropriately, the soldier pulled his trigger and shot the victim dead at close range.

When contacted, the Rivers State Police Command said it is yet to be informed of the development, adding that it would respond appropriately when it has been duly briefed about the killing.

Bounce News could not reach the APRO of 6 Div of the Nigerian Army for comments on the matter.
