Army dismisses two soldiers for k#lling Islamic cleric in Yobe

The Nigerian Army has dismissed two soldiers, Lance Corporal John Gabriel and Lance Corporal Adamu Gideon, over the m#rder of an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Goni Aisami Gashua, in Yobe State.

They were dismissed on Saturday, August 27, after a joint board of inquiry set up in collaboration with the police found them guilty.

The acting commander officer in charge of 241 Reece battalion, Nguru, Yobe State, Lt Col. Ibrahim Osabo, made this known in a statement to newsmen.

He said the two soldiers were dismissed on a two-count charge of failure to perform duties and conduct prejudice to service discipline, adding that the dismissed soldiers will be handed over to the police in Damaturu for prosecution in court of law.

It would be recalled that the deceased was k#lled at about 10 pm last Friday after he gave the principal suspect a lift.
