227 Nigerian soldiers protest unlawful dismissal

227 soldiers serving in the North Eastern zone of Nigeria have protested their alleged dismissal from the Nigerian Army by the General Officer Commanding 3 Armoured Division Jos, Plateau State.

According to Leadership, the protesting soldiers led by Sergeant Abiona Elisha stormed the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Plateau state secretariat yesterday January 16th, holding placards calling for their reinstatement into the army.



According to their leader, they were dismissed from the Army on Tuesday January 13th after being called from their various operation units to face a panel at the barracks and without being given any fair hearing or told what their offenses were.

Some of the soldiers alleged that their refusal to fight members of Boko Haram in October 2014 led to their dismissal.
“We were dismissed this week Tuesday from the service of the Nigerian Army after sending us to go and suffer fighting insurgency in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states. All of a sudden, we were recalled to the barracks and made to face trial. Even at the trial, we were not given the chance to defend ourselves. They just took a decision and dismissed us. We were not even told what our offences were during the so-called trial. We are surprised that we can be treated like this in our own country. We were sent to fight insurgents without weapons; a lot of our colleagues were killed in the course of defending our father land. Even those who are in hospital treating injuries they sustained from the battle field were also dismissed while still on hospital admission. The worst situation is that families of our colleagues killed in Adamawa and Yobe are languishing in hunger as the Nigerian Army refused to pay their entitlement ”Sergeant Abiona said 
When contacted, the the deputy director, army public relation of the 3 Armoured Division, Col Texas Chukwu denied knowledge of the dismissal of the soldiers.
“I have no knowledge of the issue, I just came back from Maiduguri, I am not aware if any soldier was dismissed.” he said

Well, according to northerners, GEJ was responsible for the above history. Their argument is that North has always been peaceful before the emergence of Good Ebele Jonathan.
The above recap shows North has always enjoyed spilling the blood of innocent Nigerians mostly christians, yet they want one Nigeria.

What an irony!

As #FailBuhari 14th draws near. If you're voting remember these facts:

1) In 2 years Buhari spent in power he didn't build a single university


2) Buhari Sacked more than 50,000 Civil servants and cut
allowance of lecturers in 1984

leading to brain drain.


3) Buhari re- introduced payment of school fees in all schools. He also banned school feeding program.

4) Buhari's failed economic policy caused alot of hardship to Nigerians. Many cried while queueing for their portions of scarce commodities like rice,sugar, salt, milk and toiletries

5) Buhari critised Federal Govt for being harsh on bokoharam members

6) Under Buhari's watch,Islamic terror group called Maitasine slaughter more than 5,000 Nigerians with mere Bow and Arrow yet they say the Old man can defeat his Bokoboys

7) Buhari Increased Nigeria externel debt by $3billion in just 1 years. Drove up Inflation by 41% , one of the worst in the history of Nigeria

8) Buhari used gun to attempt to
force down prices of goods in
1984. What a novice in
Economics.


9) Buhari is an Islamist who want sharia to be enforced all over Nigeria

10) He is also a jihadist

11) Buhari promised blood bath if he does not win elections

12) Buhari ask his supporters to Kill anybody that tries to rig 2011 election which led to the killing of many youth corpers.

The Nigerian Army has code of conduct which is in the terms of employment agreement they signed. If they violated any, then they should be dismissed. You weren't forced into the army but you joined willingly which states that you must obey the last command. The only place you soldiers have strength is when you see defenceless civilians. Disobeying order in the military is tantamount to mutiny. Whether you were giving weapons or not, your terms of agreement, states that you must obey order from your superior. People shouldn't get emotional about this.

I think you are a fool! So they should go fight heavily armed terrorists bare handed and on empty stomach???? What takes place in our army does NOT happen anywhere else or heads will roll. The demonic leaders and their greed frustrated the US army out of Nigeria last year when they came to help With d chibok girls. And wat was their report? CORRUPTION!!! People take oat to join the army with the mind that everything else, not 'will be taken care of', but is already taken care of - e.g., arms and ammunition to fight in the battle field (boko haram), welfare for them and their family if anything happens to dem in d course of carrying out their duties.
Don't open ur nasty disgusting mouth to spew shit here cos you have phone or laptop n fingers .

abisoye ologbenla said...

You're just a pathetic loser. You brought stories which are long gone and settled by the government then. The Boko haramm issue is different from all what you listed above. Boko haram is a terrorist group not an hausa or igbo or yoruba fighting ish. The president is not doing enough to curb what is happening presently in the north. I don't know if the money they're paying you is what is diverting you from saying the truth but I pray it'll not be late for you to reason well. The soldiers are complaining, and here you're quoting thrash from the old school. When last did u witness yoruba and hausa clash or igbo and hausa or igbo and yoruba? This is terrorism we are talking about. If the president can't sort it, he's not fit to be called a president. Will it be like this if the terrorism act was happening in bayelsa??? Just ask yourself. Na me even get time to they reply you.

ibeakwadalam said...

Ah, if only President Jonathan would fire Major General Ihejirika and bring in competent people who are better equipped to handle Boko Haram.


Oh wait, he did!

You have Chief of Defence Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Badeh from Adamawa.

You have Minister of Defence, Retired General Aliyu Mohammed Gusau from Zamfara State.

You have National Security Adviser, Retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki from Sokoto State.

And you then have the Inspector General of Police Suleiman Abba from Jigawa State.

The fact these men still hold down jobs and are yet to be fired is an indictment on Mr. President. Or is he afraid they will say he does not care for the North? Maybe this one, he is part of a Southern conspiracy to destabilize the North using Northerners?

I have 3 brothers serving in the army and one of them is battling presently with his life as he was shot 2 weeks ago by BH.

Assuming all the facts are true, then the soldiers have a good case against the Nigerian Army. No one should be convicted unheard; this is both a natural law as well as our constitutional prescription. Using the case of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden as an illustration, even God did not convict either without first hearing them and giving them a chance to defend themselves. I advise they get a good lawyer to sue the NA on their behalf for this unlawful dismissal. It is totally unacceptable.

Well, according to northerners, GEJ was responsible for the above history. Their argument is that North has always been peaceful before the emergence of Good Ebele Jonathan.
The above recap shows North has always enjoyed spilling the blood of innocent Nigerians mostly christians, yet they want one Nigeria.

What an irony!

Is anyone wondering if there is a deliberate attempt to weaken the Nigerian military? The soldiers are being slaughtered daily by the better armed Boko Haram terrorist, some are court martialed to death while others are dismissed. it is disturbing that while the soldiers complain of lack of weapons and guns to fight Boko Haram, our government grants license to militants to procure warships. Are the warships going to be useful in landlocked Baga or Sambisa? Where is the sense in procuring warships at this time when soldiers do not even have guns to fight Boko Haram? Their have been other reports of ex-militants involved in arms deals like the South Africa seized jet saga last year, and so many others may be taking place unreported. It seems their is an evil propaganda to demoralize the Nigeran military and strengthen certain guerrilla forces/militants. Maybe it is all part of grand plan to disintegrate the nation if the election does not favor the incumbent government. I am very afraid for the future of our dear nation. I pray God will see us through.

What the hell is going on? Are these the same soldiers who risk their lives for this country? So what kind of govt treats its soldiers this way? Is this what they get for their years of service?
