Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has directed automatic employment to two sons of the late Islamic cleric, Sheik Goni Aisami, who was gruesomely killed last Friday near Gashua.
Governor Buni gave the directive when members of the family visited him to express their gratitude for the personal concern shown to them.
Buni assured that government would ensure investigation of the circumstances surrounding the death of the cleric.
He also assured that government would continue to support the family as it has lost its bread winner.
Malam Ibrahim Aisami, who spoke on behalf of the family, expressed appreciation for the message of condolence and visitation by a high-powered government delegation to commiserate with the family.
He said the employment would cushion hardships the family may suffer following the demise of the cleric.
Shiek Aisami was allegedly killed last Friday by two suspected military personnel.
Meanwhile, the suspects have been arrested by the police while the Military announced that it has launched investigation into the matter to unveil all details, vowing that anyone found wanting would face the law.
