Three people have been confirmed dead and several others injured as a battle broke out between civilians and the military in Kaduna State.
The incident happened when a civilian was said to be packing sand into a gutter infront of Command military school and was ordered to stop by a soldier.
The civilian however pleaded with the soldier to pardon him, the soldier reportedly got angry as the civilian approached him and gunned down the civilian who has been identified as “Sunny”.
This angered some youths in the area who took to the streets to protest the killing. They took the corpse to command and blocked the gate.
Things took a deadly turn when soldiers opened fire on the civilians and killed two people on the spot.
The Kaduna State police command confirmed the incident but refused to comment further on it.
