Army dismisses soldiers over Yobe Islamic cleric’s murder

Two soldiers attached to the 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru, Yobe State have been dismissed by the Nigeria Army over the murder of an Islamic cleric, Sheikh Goni Aisami in cold blood.

Announcing the verdict, the Acting Commanding Officer of the Battalion, Lt. Col. Ibrahim Abdullahi Osabo, said the suspects were found guilty on two-count charges; namely: failure to perform military duties; and conduct to prejudice of service discipline.

The suspects had their ranks reduced from lance corporal to private before their complete dismissal.
