This is as a result of a confrontation between a soldier and a civilian named Sunny, now deceased, who was gathering a heap of sand from a gutter close to a military school at Television junction located in the state.

According to the Daily Post News, the unknown soldier ordered him to terminate his activity and subsequently shot him dead for disobeying.

DSP Aliyu Usman, the Police Public Relations Officer for Kaduna confirmed the incident to the Daily Post News but directed them to the army for more information.

The incident is the latest of the high handedness of Nigerian soldiers who are known to be brutal when dealing with civilians.
