Army dismisses 2 soldiers for killing Sheikh Aisami


The Nigerian Army has sacked two soldiers attached to 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru, Yobe State, after finding them guilty on two counts.

The Acting Commanding Officer of the Battalion, Lt. Col. Ibrahim Abdullahi Osabo, said the suspects were found guilty on charges of failure to perform military duties and conduct to prejudice of service discipline.

Osabo added that the suspects had their ranks reduced from lance corporal to private before their complete dismissal.

Recall that police in Yobe State apprehended Lance Corporal John Gabriel with service number N/A13/69/1522 and Lance Corporal Adamu Gideon N/A13/70/6552, both attached to 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru, Yobe State after allegedly killing a renowned Islamic cleric, Sheikh Goni Aisami in cold blood.
