Officers and men of the Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre, Oshodi, Lagos were thrown into mourning late Tuesday following the death of the centre’s Director of Finance, Brigadier General Audu James.

The LENTORLITENEWS gathered that General James died after one Corporal Abayomi Edun crushed him with a car while he was walking to his residence within the barrack. The incident happened at about 10:30p.m on Tuesday.

Corporal Edun was said to have acted under the influence of alcohol, as sources said he was driving recklessly before hitting the senior officer.

General James, who was said to have been immediately rushed to the hospital, later died as a result of the severe injuries already suffered from the accident.

The army corporal has since been arrested and detained by the NAFRC provost marshals investigating the matter.
