Last Sunday, it was reported by the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Usman Abdul that an Army Colonel serving with Nigeria Army School of Infantry, Jaji, Kaduna State, had been kidnapped.
According to the statement, the Colonel was abducted by armed men around Kamazo near NNPC junction, Kaduna, around 7:30 PM on Saturday.
The Nigerian Army also promised a One Million Naira gift for anyone with valuable information that will lead to the rescue of the abducted military officer.
Unfortunately, Colonel S. Inusa was found dead today. This was contained in a statement signed by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman. It read:
The Nigerian Army wishes to regrettably inform the public that Colonel Samaila Inusa who was kidnapped on Sunday 27th March 2016, was found dead today at about 6.00pm. Preliminary investigation revealed that most likely the late senior officer was killed same day he was kidnapped by his abductors. This is because the body was found already decomposing around Ajyaita village off Eastern Bypass Kaduna, Kaduna State.
Arrangements are in progress to move the body to 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Kaduna. May His soul rest in peace, Amen.
We wish to state in unmistakeable terms that whoever is behind his abduction and murder would be fished out to face the full wrath of the law.
RIP to the gallant officer.
