A Nigerian soldier enforcing the dusk-to-dawn curfew in the Igbo-Eze Local Government Area of Enugu State as directed by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has fallen off a military patrol van and crushed to death by another patrol vehicle.
An eyewitness said the victim was with his colleagues in a patrol vehicle coming from the Aji area of the council when he fell off the vehicle.
A source said, “The soldiers were in two vehicles patrolling the area before the unfortunate incident. I was standing in front of someone’s shop when the soldiers were blaring sirens. The Patrol Vehicles were on speed and suddenly one of the soldiers who was in the front vehicle fell off and the other patrol vehicle overran him.”
“Nobody knows whether he was under the influence of alcohol or anything,” the sources added.
