CITIZENS COMPASS- The Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre (NAFRC), Oshodi in Lagos on Friday, said it has commenced investigation into the death of its late Director of Finance, Brigadier-General Audu James who was allegedly killed by a corporal in Lagos State.

It also sympathised with the affected family.

Recall that the Brigadier-General died on Monday after he was hit by a corporal identified as Abayomi Edun.

NAFRC spokesperson, Lieutenant Commander Bukola Jonathan disclosed this during an interactive session with journalists on Friday.

He said that the incident was been investigated even as he conveyed the centre’s deepest condolences and sympathy to the deceased’s family, the Nigerian Army and friends of the late general.

How he died

According to the spokesperson, the late Brigadier-General OA James was having a walk back to his residence when a Toyota Highlander with number plate EKY-177-FX knocked him down resulting in an instant death.

“Consequently, the driver and the vehicle are in the custody of the Centre Provost office to assist in unravelling the circumstances that led to the very regrettable loss of the senior officer.”

He said the general’s remains had been deposited at 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Yaba, Lagos.

The tragic incident occurred barely two months after late James resumed at NAFRC.
