Nigerian soldier Identified as Lance Corporal Jibrin, who was arrested for collaborating with ISWAP terrorists has killed himself while being escorted to the barracks in Yobe State
According to PRNigeria, the soldier who belonged to one of the battalions of the Nigerian Army in the North-East was discovered by military intelligence operatives for his involvements in recent attacks on brothels and beer parlours.
Recall that an explosion occurred on Sunday at a beer parlour in the Abasha area of Gashu’a town, the headquarters of Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The attack came barely five days after terrorists killed about ten persons in a beer parlour in Geidam.
PRNigeria reported that a source said; “He was involved in recent attacks in Geidam and Gashua communities in Yobe State.
“He was apprehended while attempting to escape after he learnt that his movements and activities with terrorists had been discovered by the intelligence service.
“After being handcuffed, he skillfully snatched a gun from one of the escorts and killed himself.
“Meanwhile, (an) investigation is ongoing to nab other suspects within the service.”
Jibrin, an instructor with his Army Battalion in Geidam, was initially not seen for days, DAILY POST reports.
He was later sighted among the Boko Haram/ISWAP fighters that invaded the Yobe communities.
A team, including the Battalion Commander Officer, tracked his phone and found that Jibrin was at Gashua, many kilometers from his duty post.
On Tuesday, the soldier boarded a bus to Gombe State, in disguise, but was intercepted at a checkpoint in Gashua.
Jibrin, who implicated some other military personnel, made revelations about Boko Haram, ISWAP, the insurgents, his participation, etc.
While in transit to Geidam, he disarmed one of his escorts, overpowered another and shot himself dead.
