It was gathered that sad incident occurred during a training exercise at an army base in Borno State.

Adegor Okpako, a staff sergeant attached to 192 Battalion in Gwoza, killed himself at about 2:50 p.m. Wednesday.

Three soldiers and a member of the civilian joint task force were also seriously wounded in the random shooting by Mr Okpako, sources said.

According to reports, Mr Okpako killed himself two days after returning to the battalion after taking a break from work.

The incident might not be unrelated with the excrutiating plight of Nigerian soldiers engaging Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria’s war-ravaged northeast as it appeares thing have worsened in recent months.

Over 100 soldiers have been killed and as many feared missing since mid-July alone. In November 2017, a soldier opened fire on a captain, killing him before turning the gun on himself.

The latest suicide comes three months after an Army captain committed suicide while under psychiatric evaluation in Borno State.
