A senior officer of the Nigerian Navy and the Commandant of Command Secondary School of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, AFCSC, Jaji, has been murdered.
Her decomposing body was reportedly found in a well in a village close to the Jaji military cantonment in Kaduna State.
Identified as Commander Oluwayemisi Ogundana with service number NN/2367, she was declared missing last Friday.
She is however suspected to have been murdered by some known persons, including a staff of the college she presided over.
Though, efforts to reach the spokesman of AFCSC, Major Umar proved abortive, according to The Nation, two suspects have already been arrested in connection with the murder.
According to The Nation, a source revealed that when the military officer was not seen, efforts were made to reach her via her telephone but it was discovered that the phone was left in her room which was locked.
“The door to her room was forced open because the phone was ringing inside the sitting room and efforts to reach her other numbers, failed,” the source was quoted as saying.
According to the newspaper, blood stains were observed on her beddings and clothes as well as on the floor from the bedroom to the bathroom. Her vehicle, a Toyota SUV was also missing.
It was learnt that authorities of the military in Jaji kept some of her immediate staff and family members under close observation which finally paid off when two persons were arrested in Zaria while trying to dispose of her car.
Upon interrogation, they confessed to participating in the gruesome murder of the senior military officer and subsequently led the investigators to Agwanloyo by the railway inside an abandoned shallow well near the Deeper life Church in Jaji cantonment.
It was learnt that the corpse of the murdered Naval officer was dismembered and put in a big sack before being dumped in the shallow well.
The deceased was married with three kids, who are in their Lagos residence with their father.
The military authorities have not made any comment on the development at the time of filing this report.
