A 28-year-old pregnant woman, Mary Pelemo, has died after she was hit by a stray bullet allegedly fired by some men in military uniform in Kogi State.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, December 30, 2020, at about 9 pm in Ogori/Magongo local government council, Nigerian Tribune reports.
According to one of her elder brothers, Mr Idowu Pelemo, the mom of one was hit when some men in military uniform, who were chasing a driver, began shooting sporadically. She was standing in front of her home when the incident occurred. She sadly died the same night.
“Those men in military uniform normally station their vans along Ageva. From what one of the soldier men told me, he said they wanted to arrest the driver because the driver and some of his colleagues misbehaved to some of their officers in Okene,” he said. [Swipe]
