Repentant Boko Haram member in the Army slits woman’s throat in Enugu



Repentant Boko Haram member in the Army slits woman's throat in Enugu

A repentant Boko Haram member who reportedly enlisted into the Nigerian Army has allegedly killed a lady in Enugu.

TopNaija gathered that the ex-Boko Haram member, Private Mohammed Adamu, service number 21NA/80/0365 stabbed the lady within the Nigerian Army’s 82nd (Airborne and Amphibious) Division.

According to some source,  the corpse of a lady wearing hijab was discovered on Friday by the daughter of an army lieutenant near the division’s commanders’ quarters.

“A lifeless body of a lady who was stabbed by an unknown person was discovered yesterday in 82 division barracks,” a source had said.

“The body was discovered by the daughter of an Army lieutenant who was taking food to her dad who is working on their farm somewhere around the division officer’s quarters

“And the knife used in killing the same lady was dropped off close to the body while the body was wrapped with the hijab she was wearing.”

Despite army officials refusing to provide any comments on the incident, SaharaReporters has obtained information that the perpetrator has been identified as Pte Mohammed Adamu, a member of the division’s legal section.

As per information provided by two senior military commanders in contact with SaharaReporters, it has been revealed that the individual in question, identified as a soldier, was previously associated with the notorious extremist group Boko Haram. However, the suspect later renounced his affiliation and became a member of the Civilian Joint Task Force before eventually being recruited into the Nigerian Army in 2021.

In a significant move, the Nigerian Army has enlisted the support of 400 civilian JTF members to bolster their efforts in combating the Boko Haram militants. This development occurred between 2020 and 2021, marking a crucial step in the ongoing fight against the extremist group.

“The suspect behind the murder of Miss Hauwa, the hijab woman is 21NA/80/0365 Pte Mohammed Adamu of 82Div legal services.

“Unfortunately, Pte Mohammed Adamu is a repented Boko Haram member who after his repentance joined the civilian JTF. It was from being a CJTF that he was enlisted into the Army in the year 2021.

“Investigation revealed that Miss Hauwa and Pte Mohammed Adamu were both lovers and from the same town in Biu local government area of Borno State. He, Pte Mohammed Adamu paid her transport to come over to Enugu and killed her. He is currently in custody of the military police and his statement has been taken in which he confessed to the act.

“The late Hauwa was pregnant for Pte Adamu Mohammed before he slit her throat, stabbed her belly multiple times and tied her up in the bush near the 82Div officer’s quarters, in the early hours of Friday 12th of April.

“In his statement, Pte Mohammed Adamu claimed that the pregnancy the late Hauwa was carrying wasn’t his own, and he is not ready to father any child yet and he lured her out.”

When confronted that the Nigerian army had denied recruiting ex-Boko Haram into the military, the source said, “Not everything the army headquarters will agree to, we in the system understand better.

“These are the people we work with every day. They repent first and join the CJTF, it’s from the CTJF that they join the military. That’s how it’s being done, not that they do join immediately after repentance.

Another source verified Adamu’s arrest as the murderer of the pregnant mother.

“I know Mohammed Adamu is in the custody of the military police and has narrated that he killed Miss Hauwa and stabbed the baby in her stomach.

“Adamu is the bathman to Major HY Shehu, the persecuting counsel and also DDLS of 82 Division. He killed her with pregnancy over alleged infidelity and her body has been deposited at the 82 division military hospital.

“The body was discovered by the daughter of Lieutenant A Jackson on her way to meet her dad on the farm.”
