The death of a Nigerian soldier from the bomb blast suspected to have been detonated on a military patrol vehicle by Boko Haram in Maiduguri, Borno State on Sunday 9th October, 2011 have enraged soldiers who chidi opara reports learned went on rampage, burning homes and shooting indiscriminately in some parts of the Borno state capital.
The bomb blast also wounded three soldiers and killed a roadside petrol hawker, while about nine parked vehicles were burnt.
Efforts by chidi opara reports to get comments from the appropriate military authorities were not successful at the time of preparing this report. A military officer in Maiduguri who declined to be named however denied the incident.
Residents reportedly abandoned their homes while the shootings were going on in the early hours of yesterday. The situation has however been normalized at the intervention of the military high command.
Residents revealed that the military have been harassing innocent citizens whom they always accuse of being Boko Haram sympathizers.
About ten suspects are being interrogated in connection with the bomb blast.
