Prof. Ishaq Akintola, Director, MURIC said this in a statement in Abuja.

“The most popular Islamic scholar in Gashua, Yobe, Shaykh Goni Aisami was killed on Friday, Aug. 19, by a soldier who claimed to be on duty and begged for a lift from Nguru to Jajimaji town. On their way, the soldier ordered him to stop the car, shot him three times and dumped his body” said Akintola.
