He said that Mr Galadima was duly dismissed from the Nigerian Army in 2013 after a General Court Marshal that held in Kaduna found him guilty.

“His last unit was 2 Provost Group where he was involved in a case of attempted murder leading to his arrest and prosecution before the General Court Marshal in Kaduna.

“After his dismissal, Adamu found his way to Kaduna State Environmental Services where he secured a job as a cleaner.

“He is, therefore, not a personnel of the Nigerian Army as at April 2021, when he committed the alleged crime,’’ he said.

Mr Yerima said that the Nigerian Army remains a disciplined organisation that would not condone any unprofessional conduct on the part of its officers and soldiers.

He urged members of the public to ignore the misleading story currently being shared in the social media.
