The officers, Sani Ishaya, Bidemi Fabiyi, Abdulrasheed Adamu, and Bala Musa were arraigned by the Nigerian Army for manslaughter before 7 Division General Court, Operation Lafia Dole, Maimalari Cantonment in Maiduguri, Borno state capital.
Peoples Gazette learnt that Mr. Apogu was accused of theft and was tortured to death by Mr. Ishaya.
The court sentenced erring officer Ishaya to four years imprisonment, while his accomplices Messrs Fabiyi, Adamu and Musa got two years, one year and one year sentences respectively for involvement in the crime.
