Fake soldier granted interview to BBC - DHQ says

On Tuesday August 19th, a Nigerian soldier spoke with the BBC explaining why himself and some other soldiers refused the order from their superiors to go fight Boko Haram insurgents. He alleged that they were not provided good weapons and ammunition and so gave Boko Haram the upper hand during any battle because the militants are more well equipped (read that here).

Now the Defence Headquarters says the man who spoke with BBC is an impostor. Their statement below
That degree of cowardice is not in the character of a real soldier of the Nigerian Army.  The series of lies contained in the alleged responses of the faceless person referred to as a soldier confirms the whole arrangement as another step of the mischief makers working for terrorists.  No soldier has been sent on any mission without being armed. Each soldiers answers for his action in terms of discipline.
Anyone who knows the military reward for mutiny will not join another person to try it.  The overwhelming majority of the Nigerian soldiers remains as brave and disciplined as ever.  They will certainly not join any renegade, coward, deserter or those trying to incite mutiny in the military to betray the nation at time like this, in a way that impostor told his interviewers.  His claims are false.
Certainly soldiers are not being sent to die.  We may not have everything now, but we are improving on weapons and equipment rapidly

Impostor or not,what the mischief maker said is the truth.The kinda crude implements called weapons our khaki boys handle makes me wana believe those weapons did come from hitlers time.Seeing BH pillage and ravage the once dominant Nigerian army & NPF in their spiritual training ground gives credibility to this "impostor's" claim..BH boys have shown their prowess and sophisticated weapons when they attacked Jaji millitary cantonement,and now the mopol training ground Gwoza.And this one is here debunking everything.Okay na,he will live long enough to see how this junior ranking soldiers will stir up a mutiny.That time he'll know how badly those guys have been cheated,betrayed,underpaid and sacrificed.

the DHQ is a mess, mutiny, incompetence and a whole lot of shi# all in this time of terrorism! Why do I feel that this is just an attempt to cover up for their in ability to effectively combat this threat that has being plaguing this here country for months! there is no way that soldier is fake cos he isn't the first to complain about how ill equipped they are to fight book haram

DHQ can lie for Africa! Impostor indeed!!!

MlleP said...

I don't know why we Nigerians prefer to do the wrong thing and then try to hide it from the outside world. I have heard this same information from other sources. Instead of the government to do the needful and protect our soldiers, they punish them for demanding their rights or deny like this guy just did. It is a shame! Government should stop trying to hide the facts because their insincerity is appalling

what pains me sometimes is the fact that you can't trust anyone up there when it comes to national issues.

The Crux of the matter which is adequate supply of arms and aid to Nigeria army should not be argued rather Government should listen to them for once and provide whatever help they need so that they can combat and defeat in battle.

NOTHING LIKE IMPOSTERS THE DEFENCE HEADQUATERS ARE TRYING TO DENY THE TRUTH

Anonymous said...

The impostor is saying the truth! when the truth is being said in Nigeria, they term it as a lie. if the army has better equipment, they would have dealt with boko haram by now.
That was how they said Ameyo was healed and now we are hearing of her death.
Leaders that lie while looking at one straight in the face.

God bless you for that. The sophisticated weapon boko haram use, i dont see the military having it in 3 years to come. Even bulletproof is an issue for the military. God help us. Our lives in ur hands.

we all know the only thing the nigerian armed forces is good for is for killing unarmed civilians. a parasite upon us that swallows 30% of our national budget to perform oil bunkering and cannot even defend their own backyard. a disgrace of incompetence nonsense and stupid. the definition of cowardice 1 trillion naira 80% of which is recurrent expencidture for 130000 troops, do the math guys do nigerian soldiers earn 600K a month ? please open your eye be a patriot why should a general be rich ? rise up more mutiny

Its a lie jare a fake soldier can not grant an interview on tv for that matter knowing fully well that they will catch him.Biko they r just trying to defend themselves for not giving the military good weapons so they can fight boko haram.This time the blame is not on Apc but the poor soldier who spoke the truth

Anonymous said...

It was not a fake Soldier. The soldier spoke the truth. Nigerian government are trying to save face by saying the soldier was fake. My husband is in Borno State and complains about same. How come our soldiers always look forward to going for peace keeping? that is because the UN provides them with good arms.I really do not know who has brain washed Jonathan not look into the fate of what our soldiers are going through. Why is it only men from the south that are being sent to that state? All these are political.
