The kidnapped Army officer serving at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry Jaji in Kaduna State, Colonel Samaila Inusa, has been found dead.
The Nigerian Army said in a statement on Tuesday evening he had just been found dead around Ajyaita Village, off Eastern Bypass, in Kaduna, adding that he was probably killed by his abductors on the day he was snatched.
Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Acting Director of Army Public Relations who signed the statement, explained that conclusion, saying the body was found already decomposing.
Col. Inusa’s body will be moved to the 44 Nigerian Army Reference hospital in the city, he said.
“We wish to state in unmistakable terms that whoever is behind his abduction and murder would be fished out to face the full wrath of the law,” he vowed.
