A Nigerian soldier who was nabbed for collaborating with ISWAP terrorists has killed himself while being escorted to the barrack.

PRNigeria gathered that the soldier with one of the battalions of the Nigerian Army in the North-East was discovered by military intelligence operatives for his involvements in recent attacks on brothels and beer parlours.

“After being handcuffed, he skillfully snatched a gun from one of the escorts and killed himself.

“Meanwhile, investigation is ongoing to Nab other suspects within the service,” a source told PRNigeria.
