The Lance corporal also killed two of his colleagues, Sgt Iliyasu Yunusa and private Attahiru Mohammed .
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the rampaging soldier committed suicide by shooting himself dead after the triple murder over the weekend.
The late Lt. Oladapo was the Commander of the Forward Operating Base (FOB) Rabah in Sokoto State.
PLATFORM TIMES reports that Chinoso reportedly first killed his Commander and then proceeded to shoot Inusa, and Mohammed dead.
Credible military sources in Sokoto who confirmed the story, however could not ascertain the mental stability of the trigger-happy soldier.
“They have made efforts to move the corpse of the slain personnel to the Usmanu Dan Fodio Teaching Hospital, even as they have since ordered an investigation into the cause of the incident”.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a top military officer in Sokoto, said “The soldier who killed his FOB Commander at Rabah, and two other colleagues of his, may perhaps be battling operational and psychological stress.
“It is something that is common with military personnel. But that’s not a justification for any of our soldiers to go haywire. Definitely, necessary action will be taken to forestall a recurrence. ”
