Soldier Kills Love Rival In Plateau Over Girlfriend

An angry soldier has allegedely shot and killed a fellow man for daring to drag a woman with him.

What extent can a man go to show his love for a woman? Would you kill a fellow man to show the woman how much you love her? Well, this is exactly what a soldier attached to the Special Task Force, (STF), on the Jos, Plateau State crisis, allegedly did when he reportedly shot and killed a man who has been having 'eyes' for the soldier's girlfriend. The ugly and sad incident happened at Jarmai village of Kanam Local Government Area of the state.

According to ThisDay newspaper, the deceased, named Buhari Alhaji Kawu, was said to have incurred the wrath of the rampaging soldier who would not brook any nonsense from a bloody civilian who dared to insult his woman by asking her out. The soldier reportedly intercepted Buhari and his brother, Ibrahim Alhaji Kawu, and also dispossessed them of the sum of N80,000.

Abdullahi Abubakar, a relation of the deceased, told journalists in Jos that the soldier was reported to have been trailing Buhari, who had allegedly insulted his girlfriend, and that when he eventually met him with his brother, killed him and dispossessed them of the money.

After he carried out the dastardly act, the soldier managed to escape by shooting sporadically into the air to scare people away and a manhunt for him has been fruitless.
