Soldier ‘Stabs Trader To Death’ In Ondo


A trader identified as Ezeani Ebuka was allegedly stabbed to death by a yet-to-be identified soldier at the popular Arakale market in Akure, Ondo state.

A source in the market said the incident happened after the soldier mobilised his colleagues to forcefully get refund of money he paid to the trader for a service.

Said the source: “I think the soldier and the trader had an argument over service rendered by the trader. I think the soldier was not satisfied with the service and he asked for a refund.

“That was when the trouble started. Later, the solder mobilised his colleagues and the arguments continued. It was there the trader was stabbed by one of the soldiers, after which they left the scene”.

When contacted, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, spokesperson of the Ondo State police Command, confirmed the incident.

Said she: “Yes, the police can confirm the stabbing of a young man by a soldier. The command is in touch with the military authority so that the culprit(s) can be identified and arrested”.
