Two Nigerian soldiers were killed accidentally in an explosion in the central Plateau state on Saturday as they transported ammunition meant to be destroyed, a military spokesman said.

“Some of the unserviceable ammunitions exploded in the process of moving them to the demolition site in the bush,” Colonel Sani Usman said on Facebook.
