KENINGAU: A Wataniah soldier was accidentally shot dead with a homemade gun during a hunting trip.

In the unfortunate incident at about 5.30pm on Monday, Akoi Andiman, 29, was hit by a stray bullet fired from his brother-in-law’s bakakuk.

Akoi was believed to have died on the spot.

Disclosing this to reporters here yesterday, district police chief DSP Zahari Mohamed said Akoi and his brother-in-law have both spotted a wild boar and Akoi had taken the first shot but missed the target.

The brother-in-law then fired a shot at the direction of the wild boar but it also missed and hit Akoi instead.

Zahari said the suspect, 34, who is also a Wataniah soldier, has surrendered to police at the Nabawan police station.

“He has also handed over the two homemade guns,” Zahari said, adding that the suspect was being detained for three days to facilitate further investigation.

The body of Akoi has been sent to the hospital here for a post-mortem.

Zahari said the duo had gone into the jungle of Nabawan near here to hunt with four friends.

The police have recently urged all babakuk owners to hand over their weapons as they are illegal.
