Nigerian Army Dismisses 2 Soldiers For Killing Islamic Cleric + Ex Soldiers To Face Civil Prosecution...

The Nigerian Army(NA) dismissed from service, two soldiers, Lance Corporal John Gabriel and Lance Corporal Adamu Gideon, allegedly involved in the killing of an Islamic cleric, Sheik Goni Gashua Aisami in Yobe state. 

The soldiers were dismissed after facing trial at the Headquarters 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru on Saturday 27 August 2022, having been indicted in a report of a Board of Inquiry set up to investigate the unfortunate incident.

Both soldiers were charged and summarily tried for Failure to perform military duties and Conduct prejudice to service discipline, punishable under Section 62(a) of Armed Forces Act CAP A20 and Section 103(1) of Armed Forces Act CAP A20 Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004. Both of them were found guilty and awarded reduction of rank from Lance Corporal to Private and Dismissed Regiments.

The two dismissed soldiers will be officially handed over to the Nigeria Police, Yobe State Command in Damaturu for civil prosecution in the court of law.
It could be recalled that the NA had pledged to institute a Board of Inquiry to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and speedily bring the suspects to justice, if indicted.

Once more, the NA wishes to commiserate with the family of the victim and the good people of Yobe State. May the soul of the deceased rest in perfect peace.


  1. They just wasted life for nothing

  2. Good they were not just dismissed, but to face the law as well. Thumbs up, Nigerian Army.

  3. Criminal prosecution and not Civil Prosecution.

  4. Look what greed has cost u.wicked u have lost ur job

  5. PTSD sufferers. No counselling no rehabilitation for those fighting Boko haram for so long most of them are demons by now.

    1. You are very hubby said the same. He said those who were sent in fighting book haram should not be sent home but for counseling before mixing up with human ... because they have experience aloy of things too in the cause of is well with our nation

  6. The people that were supposed to protect us?!
    What's really happening.

  7. Why not use the same energy for the soldiers who were killing indiscriminately in the East.

    Especially innocent young men who were doing quite well... stealing their cars and emptying their accounts after killing them. They too don't they deserve justice??
