The remains of the late Army Officer that was abducted and later killed by yet to be identified gunmen in Kaduna State, Colonel Samaila Inusa, have been laid to rest.

He was buried at the old Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) Muslim Cemetery in the state capital on Wednesday.

Prayers were offered for the deceased at the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital mosque in the presence of relations, colleagues and friends before his remains were later taken to the NDA Muslim cemetery for interment.

Speaking at the burial ground, the Chief of Army Staff, who was represented by the Chief Administrative Officer, Major General Ado Abubakar, described the abduction and subsequent murder of the late Colonel as a great loss to the Nigerian Army.

He described him as a very committed officer who never joked with his responsibilities. He announced that the Nigerian army authorities will do everything possible to unmask those behind the abduction and killing of the late colonel.

A high point of the burial was the shooting of three gun salute by officers in honour of the departed colleague.

The late Colonel Inusa was kidnapped by unknown gunmen on Saturday night, and was later found dead around Ajyaita village, off Eastern Bypass in Kaduna on Monday.

After his abduction, the military issued a statement, offering a bounty of one million Naira to anyone that would give an information that could lead to the rescue of the Colonel.

In a press statement issued on Wednesday by the acting director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, said that preliminary investigation revealed that, most likely, the late officer was killed same day he was kidnapped by his abductors.

Colonel Inusa was the Commander, 81 Battalion located in Bulabulin, Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.

He was later transferred to the Armed Forces and Command and Staff College, Jaji, where he was served until his abduction last Saturday. (Channels TV)
