Once again, residents of Chibok community have been handed another harsh memory of death within their local council area.

First it was Boko Haram's forceful kidnap of over 200 girls in one night.

There is tension in Chibok after a staff sergeant in the Nigerian Army, Silas Ninyo, shot dead a captain, four civilians and himself during an altercation.

Ninyo killed the captain, identified only as Mani, and the four others when he (Ninyo) was allegedly ordered by Mani to stop beating some civilians at a checkpoint.

The captain was said to have been providing security for worshippers during a church service when he received a distress call that Ninyo was disrespecting the rules of engagement.
