The Borno State Police Command has arrested three Civilian Joint Task Force(CJTF) members for allegedly killing a teacher, Babagana Ahmed Gaidam.
LIB reported that the 42-year-old headmaster of Asheikh Jarma Mega School, at Bulumkuttu Abuja, in Maiduguri, was stabbed to death at his residence at 3am on Monday October 12
According to reports, the suspects were arrested at Bulumkuttu Abuja area of Maiduguri on Tuesday,
October 12, following a directive by the Commissioner of Police(CP), Abdu Umar. Gaidem was said to have been transferred to the Asheik Jarma Mega Primary School about seven weeks ago.
According to sources, the victim, upon resumption in the school, embarked on reforms of some operational policies.
A teacher and friend of the deceased, Abdullaziz, told Punch that the reforms included the disengagement of the civilian joint task force deployed as security men in the school after he discovered that there were issues pertaining to theft of the school properties.
“When he got to the school, he discovered that there were issues pertaining to theft of school property, such as fans, ACs and other important learning equipment, which were being removed and sold,” Abdullaziz narrated.
Yet, there were security personnel stationed in the school. So, he organised a management meeting to discuss the way forward and at the meeting it was agreed that the civilian JTF should be relieved.
The management hired Fulani men in their place; but it (the decision) did not go down well with the JTF volunteers.”
