Stray bullet kills soldier, civilian


One soldier and a civilian have been killed in Borno State by a stray bullet, PRNigeria has learnt.

The soldier, and civilian, were killed when Boko Haram terrorists attack a military formation in Njimtilo, on Monday.

PRNigeria gathered that the terrorists sneaked close to the military formation metres to the Borno State University on foot, and began shooting sporadically.

"Troops of the Nigerian Army, who were taken unaware by the ambush, stood their grounds to repel the attack.

"Unfortunately, one civilian and a soldier lost their lives after they were hit by a stray bullet," a local source disclosed.
