Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of a prominent Islamic cleric last weekend in the north eastern state of Yobe.
Buhari described the attack on Sheikh Goni Aisami as an unprovoked and cold-blooded murder.
Sheikh Aisami is said to have been shot dead by a solider in the Karasuwa area. Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the killing.
Buhari directed the military to punish the perpetrators of this heinous crime without delay, and flush out other elements with such criminal tendencies.
