A Nigerian student was reportedly killed by soldiers on the Plateau.
According to Sahara Reporters, Mohammad Mado, a polytechnic student, was at a wedding with his relatives in Dengi, in the government district of Kanam Loka in Plateau State, when he was killed by soldiers.
On Tuesday, her friends took to social media to demand justice.
Others insisted that the Nigerian military should not label the incident as false news in their usual tradition of denying the atrocities committed by their personnel.
Sahara Reporter exclusively reported on Tuesday that soldiers assigned Saturday for Operation Safe Haven in Plateau state killed Mado and wounded three other relatives on their way to the wedding.
The soldiers reportedly set up an illegal checkpoint in the village of Kyamsagi, and when Mado, Polytechnic student Abubakar Tatari Ali, Bauchi State, and other wedding attendants arrived at the scene on a motorcycle, the soldiers opened fire on them.
It turned out that the young people were heading to their elder sister’s wedding in the village of Jarmai in Wasa, Kanam province, when they encountered a military checkpoint.
According to eyewitnesses, the soldiers did not allow the wedding assistants to introduce themselves before shooting them, considering them to be bandits or kidnappers.
However, some Nigerians on Twitter and Facebook have called for justice for the dead.
For example, Armayau Haladu (@Armiwase) said, “This is a true story because this incident took place in Wasa, LGA, my hometown. And we seriously demand justice for his soul. Because this guy hasn’t been caught for any crime. And therefore his life was very dear to us in society. “
Muhammad Muhammad (@MMAdamu) also tweeted, “This is sad. This stupid soldier only knows how to kill innocent citizens, but he cannot do anything when he sees Boko Haram. “
On Facebook, someone wrote: “And the government is silent about all this?”
“It was #EndPoliceBrutality, military brutality could end soon,” another person wrote.
“The day of reckoning is approaching when the Nigerian military will report their role in these killings. No criminal will be forced to go free, ”said another commentator.
