The Nigerian army has dismissed two soldiers allegedly involved in the killing of Goni Aisami, an Islamic cleric in Yobe.

John Gabriel and Adamu Gideon, both lance corporals, were the two soldiers dismissed.

Ibrahim Osabo, the acting commander officer in charge of army’s 241 Reece battalion in Nguru, told journalists that a joint board of inquiry set up in collaboration with the police found the soldiers guilty.

The two soldiers, he said, were dismissed on a two-count charge of failure to perform duties and conduct prejudice to service discipline.


He also said the dismissed soldiers will be handed over to the police in Damaturu for prosecution.

Aisami was allegedly killed by Gabriel after the former offered him a ride.

The police had earlier paraded the two soldiers and three other persons over the alleged murder.


President Muhammadu Buhari had also directed the military to flush out the killers of the cleric.
