Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on November 12, 2019
One hundred and thirty soldiers are currently on trial for various offences, including dereliction of duty, indiscipline, desertion, cowardice and lackadaisical attitude to the fight against insurgency.
The trial is said to be the parade of the largest number of soldiers in the history of Army court martial in the country.
The affected soldiers were reportedly those in the theatre command of Operation Lafiya Dole in the Northeast.
The indicted soldiers, who are young in age and ranks, will undergo trial in Maiduguri, Borno State, at two different court martial recently inaugurated by the Army and the Theatre Command.
Investigation also showed that the processes for their trial had been concluded with the inauguration of the two military courts martial by the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole and the Acting General Officer Commander 7 Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri.
