Residents of Gwagwarwa Community in Nassarawa Local Government Area (LGA) of Kano State have demanded justice over the alleged killing of 23-year-old Yusuf Shuaibu by a military officer.

The deceased, who was employed as a cleaner at the Nigerian Air Force Hospital in Kano, reportedly suffered fatal injuries at the hands of a military officer identified as Oga Aminu.

Shuaibu Bala, the grieving father of the deceased recounted the tragic event.

He said, “After completing a night shift, Yusuf was about to head home when Oga Aminu instructed him to perform a task. Upon completion, Yusuf requested money for food, but instead, he faced a violent attack, leaving visible bite marks on his body.”

He appealed to Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, Emir of Kano Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the National Human Rights Commission, and Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar to ensure the family gets justice.

NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet, stated that Chief of Air Staff, Hassan Abubakar, had ordered a discreet investigation.

According to Gabkwet, the deceased had an altercation with an airman recently, which was seemingly resolved.

However, the circumstances surrounding Yusuf’s demise remained unclear.

Gabkwet said the NAF was committed to uncovering the truth behind Shuaibu’s death and extend condolences to his family.
