According to him, the victim, who was in mufti, tried to pacify the hawker and an altercation ensued resulting in irate youth beating him to coma.
Idirisu said the soldier later died at the hospital, while investigation has begun.
He said efforts had been intensified to arrest all the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Meanwhile, John Abimiku, a witness, told NAN that the area has been deserted for fear of the unknown.
“As I speak with you now, about four military trucks are stationed in the area and soldiers are picking up any youth on sight,” Abimiku added.
He claimed that the two persons arrested by the police were among those who took the soldier to the hospital after the mob action.
