Troops of the Nigerian army’s operation Hadin Kai have arrested one soldier for allegedly stealing and supplying ammunition to criminal gangs.

The suspect, identified as Iorliam Emmanuel, is said to be working under the 156 task force battalion in Mainok, Borno state.

According to Zagazola Makama, a publication focused on the LakeChad region, the soldier was caught in possession of ammunition on his way out of Maiduguri, the state capital.

In a video shared by the publication, soldiers were seen stripping the suspect of ammunition strapped to his body.

“You see your life? You, you will go and give Boko Haram these things so that they will come and attack us in this camp. Don’t worry. God pass you,” some soldiers were heard in the clip.

“All these ones don tey, they don rust,” a soldier said in reference to bullets that appeared to have been in the suspect’s possession for a while.

According to Zagazola Makama, the suspect who hails from Benue, regularly steals ammunition and supplies to criminal gangs across the country suspected to be bandits.

The suspect is said to have been handed over to the military intelligence for investigation.
Onyema Nwachukwu, army spokesman, was not immediately available to comment on the matter when contacted by newsmen.

JUST IN: Akwa-Ibom YPP governorship candidate, Bassey Albert, sentenced to 42 years imprisonment for fraud

Published

By

A federal high court in Akwa Ibom has sentenced Bassey Albert, governorship candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), to 42 years in prison for fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had, in 2019, arraigned Albert on a six-count charge of allegedly taking possession of six vehicles worth N204 million when he was finance commissioner in the state.

He was said to have collected one of the vehicles from Jide Omokore, an associate of Diezani Alison Madueke, former minister of petroleum.

Omokore reportedly had dealings with the state when he offered Bassey the vehicles.

Delivering judgment on Thursday, Agatha Okeke, the presiding judge, found the senator guilty of the offences.

Consequently, he was sentenced to Ikot Ekpene prison to serve his jail term.

Albert, a serving senator representing Akwa Ibom north-east district, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He, however, defected to the YPP in July, where he secured the party’s ticket for the 2023 governorship election.

Aminu Muhammad, a student of Federal University Dutse (FUD), has been remanded in prison over his controversial tweet on Aisha Buhari.

Muhammad, who hails from Azare in Bauchi state, is a final-year student at the department of environmental management.

Aminu’s tweet, accompanied by a photo of Aisha, loosely translates as “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
