A Nigerian soldier identified as Samaila Gabriel has shot himself dead in Yobe state, according to a report by The Cable.

The deceased with service number 09NA/63/2867 was said to have taken his life out of frustration.

Revealing details of the incident, one of Gabriel’s  colleagues said the victim got frustrated as a result of the refusal of the authorities to transfer him out of the north-east since he was posted there three years ago.

The army is yet to release a statement over the tragic incident.

Some of the soldiers on the battlefront have not been allowed to visit their loved ones in years, while many have been killed by insurgents.

Gabriel’s corpse has reportedly been deposited at the Sani Abacha hospital in Damaturu, the state capital.

The tragic incident comes less than a month after a staff sergeant identified as Silas Ninyo killed one K. Mani, his superior, and injured four people in the Chibok local government area of Borno state.

Ninyo took his own life after wreaking the havoc.
