According to our sources, the soldier, attached to 198 Special Forces Battalion, had just been relieved from duties at Damasak town in Borno State, after recently obtaining a sick report.
When interrogated by the police, Mr Mohammed claimed he sourced the ammunition from a broken-down vehicle in his unit.
The soldier arrested with 2000 rounds of ammunition, other items found in his possession were a three-day excuse duty and two reports of hospital test. The army has since told the police that the soldier was not issued a pass or given medical leave to travel.
A military insider says the army is waiting on the Borno State Police Command to hand over the erring soldier to it for a detailed investigation of the matter.
