2 Soldiers Arrested For Killing Of Yobe Cleric, Sheik Goni Aisami

Yobe State Police Command said it has paraded
two army personnel who allegedly killed a
renowned Islamic cleric, Sheikh Goni Aisami last
Friday.


DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, the Command’s Public
Relations Officer, disclosed this in a statement
made available to DAILY POST in Damaturu.


He disclosed that on 19th August, 2022 detectives
from Karasuwa Divisional Police Headquarters in
response to a distress call apprehended N/
A13/69/1522 Lance Corporal John Gabriel and N/
A13/70/6552 Lance Corporal Adamu Gideon both
attached to 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru, Yobe state.


Part of the statement read: “One of the assailants
L/CPL John Gabriel, whose intention was to rob
unsuspecting motorists of their vehicle, left the
barrack on the said date in mufti having concealed
his rifle in a camp bed for military checkpoint at
Nguru at about 2200hrs.


“Meanwhile, one Sheikh Goni Aisami, a prominent
Islamic scholar based in Gashu’a who was
travelling alone from Kano to Gashu’a in his Honda
Accord car with Reg. No KBT 31 AE arrived at the
military checkpoint in Nguru.
“L/CPL John Gabriel requested the Islamic cleric to
offer him free ride to Jaji Maji which he obliged.


While driving and before reaching Jaji-Maji town the
assailant asked him to park that there was an
unusual noise at the rear tyre.
“When the cleric came down, while checking the
tyre, the suspect brought out his rifle, shot and
killed him. He dragged the body and hid it in the
bush.


“The suspect took possession of the vehicle with
intention of taking it away but the vehicle refused to
start after several attempts.


“The suspect called his accomplice L/CPL Adamu
Gideon from 241 RECCE Battalion, Nguru and auto-
electrician from Jaji Maji to assist in starting the
car”.


DSP Abdulkarim, added that a passerby in the
morning sighted a corpse, a vehicle and some
unidentified persons then alerted police personnel
from Jaji-maji who promptly mobilized and raced
down to the scene.


According to him this led to the arrest of the two
soldiers and recovery of the corpse, deceased
vehicle and the rifle used in the commission of the
offence as well as recovery of a Volkswagen Sharon
bus found at the scene of crime.


“In the course of investigation the culprits
confessed to the crime.

Investigation is still
ongoing, suspects are in police custody and as
soon as investigation is concluded they will be
charged to court”,

he said.
In another development, DPS Dungus Abdulkarim,
disclosed that the command has paraded three
suspects who specialized in kidnapping and armed
robbery in some parts of the state.
