According to the Nigerian Army, Operation Safe Haven troops have detained the alleged assassin of Mrs. Dorathy Jonathan in Kaduna State’s Southern Kaduna region.
The army claims that Jonathan was brutally killed on Friday, September 1, 2023, at Afana village in the state’s Zango Kataf Local Government Area while going to get firewood.
This information was made public on Thursday in a tweet from the Nigerian Army’s account, @HQNigerianArmy, on X (formerly Twitter).
Based on reliable intelligence, the arrest was made, and the army sprang into action right away.
Dauda claimed that while he was clearing property, he approached the victim and made overt advances toward her.
He claimed that she fought back against him, which resulted in her horrifying murder.
The army stated that efforts are still being made to apprehend Dauda’s accomplice, and that the suspect who has been detained would face charges in court after the inquiry is over.
