54 soldiers sentenced to death by Nigerian military allegedly starved of food

54 soldiers sentenced to death for mutiny by a military court  in Abuja last Wednesday Dec.17th, are reportedly being starved of food and basic care, a military source told Premium Times

The soldiers, who were transferred from Abuja to Lagos on Sunday December 21st, are said to be serially shackled by their legs and crammed in two cells without beds or food or any form of care..
“The first cell has 30 soldiers. The second is underground and has 24 soldiers. There are no beds, no mattresses. The soldiers have not been fed since Sunday.” the source said.
The soldiers have been in this condition since they arrived Lagos Sunday Dec. 21st till Wednesday December 24th but no one knows if their conditions have since improved.

If you are thinking of going to military, you have to know that it's not a Childs play. Don't go there cos you want to intimidate ur friend or enemy.

Is this not enough encouragement for people to join Boko harm.... They should set those solider's free... If them the judges were in their shoes they will do worse than them.

Haven't they been sentenced already? Why torture them even before death? And we have a govt in dis country! How callous?

Anonymous said...

Linda we need to fight for these soldiers. I don't want them to die. Can't the president do something about this? This is really cruel. Please don't kill them.

Jules Louis said...

This is even more horrible than the sentence itself.

yaxx said...

oh God!! wat kind of punishment is dis?

Anonymous said...

But in d name of good reasoning and good judgement. Is dis fair?

ary said...

They are being punished for daring to stand up against oppression, this is the same thing that we have faced since the advent of the military rule! They break you down, break your spirit till you lose the will to fight and just wait to die! That's is what we are experiencing now in this dreadful country. Where is Amnesty international when you need them?

This is wickedness. Niger delta militants are being paid 65k per month for doing nothing. Even after killing several people and destroying properties. Yet these soldiers are being tortured and executed for refusing to fight lions with their bare hands.
