Tragedy struck on on Tuesday January 14 as a stray bullet from an army officer killed the sister of a lady who called him in to allegedly help her beat up a neighbour.
The sad incident reportedly occurred at Seaside Estate in Badore, Ajah area of Lagos State following a heated exchange that ensued after the deceased and her sister Kamsi, reportedly tried moving out of the property they lived in without settling their pending bills.
It was gathered that Kamsi called in the soldier to deal with their neighbor who insisted on payment of the pending bill. A struggle between the soldier and the sisters’ male neighbour led to accidental discharge of two bullets which killed the deceased.
Though the soldier escaped from the scene of the incident before the police who were called in arrived, Kamsi and their male neighbour were reportedly whisked away.
