The Yobe State High Court sitting in Potiskum on Tuesday sentenced a dismissed soldier, Lance Corporal John Gabriel, to death by hanging and Lance Corporal Adamu Gideon to 10 years imprisonment.

Justice Usman Zanna Mohammed who handed down the verdict convicted Mr Gabriel with Nigerian Army number, N/A13/69/6522 attached to 241 Recce Battalion, Nguru and Mr Gideon after he found them guilty of murder and conspiracy respectively.

Delivering the judgement, Justice Mohammed held that after a careful consideration of facts before the court and the failure of the defendants to provide essential witnesses to corroborate their claim sentenced the two convicts in line with the provisions of the law.

Recall that on August 22, 2022, a prominent Islamic scholar based in Gashua, Sheikh Goni Aisami was brutally murdered in Karasuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State by a soldier whom he gave a lift while on his way to Gashua from Kano.

Angered by the action of the ex-soldiers, Yobe State Government, through the Ministry of Justice, took the matter to court which led to the judgement.
