Commanding Officer Track, Nab Soldier, Lance Corporal Jibrin


This is Lance Corporal, a soldier, an instructor with his Army Battalion in Geidam, Yobe state who reportedly disappeared for about 2 days.

He was however sighted among the terrorists who  attacked Geidam town last Sunday.

On the strength of this, his commanding officer tracked his phone and he was pinpointed at a point in Gashua, hundreds of kilometers from his supposed duty post. 

A Signal was sent to the Army base in Gashua and dragnets were spread out for him.

Tuesday morning, L/Cpl Jibrin disguised himself and boarded a bus to Gombe but was identified and nabbed at the checkpoint in Gashua.

He was arrested and handcuffed. On transit to Geidam, Jibrin employed his skills as a weapon instructor, snatched a gun from one of his escorts, over powered the other and blew himself up.

His revelations when he was arrested and interrogated, however led to the arrest of some of his terror-brethren in Service.

Many of his cohorts are believed to still be among the troops in both Gombe and Geidam Battalions. 

L/Cpl Jibrin, a Babur from Biu, was in the Intelligence Corps of the army before becoming a weapons instructor. He was reportedly one of the best.
