Nigerian military condemns CNN's interview with Nigerian soldiers

CNN aired an interview a few hours ago with people they claim are Nigerian soldiers who told them that Nigerian soldiers are buying their own kits and when they get injured in the line of duty, they cater for their own medical bills. The Nigerian military has condemned the interview.. they even said Satanic CNN report. Lol. Watch interview here

Oohhh plsssss.. we all know that what they aired is the truth. Nigerian military should come open with this and take care of those military men risking their lives with out dated guns and what have you. I watched that interview which Hala Gorani aired. It's because our government knows that it's the truth and that's why they want to condemn it to look as if those military men and CNN ate lying. But we know the truth. They don't even take care of their medical bills. Seriously that's bizarre. Not good at all. How can you gv someone an out dated gun to fight those who hv AK47?? We should think about it. For me CNN did nothing wrong.

I am still very upset watching that interview, it might be true. Corruption has finished Nigeria. And the same people still wants to be in power.

Trust Nigeria to attribute everything to satanic forces.it might be wrong for the officers to speak without authorization but please the military spokesman should respond intelligently instead of embarrassing us by sounding like an illiterate.satanic my foot.

I don't think is a lie
Many soldiers have been complaining about this issue since
The nigeria military is just covering up with this statement.

They can't continue fooling us.

A short while ago,while abroad,I met a former Nigerian military officer (former,because he was injured in combat).

Whenever I'm abroad,I'm curious to know why some people choose to stay there doing menial jobs rather than come home so I always engage them in conversation.His,story broke my heart.he was wounded and several were killed.he showed me his wounds.where am I going with this?he said him and the,others were left for dead and yes,he funded his own treatment and apparently also pay,for their own military gear (boots,uniform etc).The story was long and quite sad.
So while I don't know CNN's,reasons and motive,the head honchos are not disbursing as they should.

You hide behind your keyboards and criticise, imagine if your age a front line nigerian army personnel and reading this? Will you be happy? Who says cnn says the truth? Is it not thesame station that said a city in uk (Birmingham ) is fully Muslim? They back tracked and apologised when they realised they lied to the public. Support your people and stop believing and glamorising everything bad people say about you. How can we be United if all we do is criticise and support others that criticise us??

Well, at least CNN did not show the military and police academies that look like they are in a war zone themselves. Maybe they should show that instead.

Look at how these politicians kids live well, dress well, eat well, and travel the globe in all modes of luxury; yet the poor soldiers can't even get a nutritious meal daily? How are they supposed to fight war on empty bellies, Indomie is not food, it's crap. They need heightened vision, good hearing, good reflexes and strong bodies.

@dilinger , people here are supporting our people, hence they are asking for them to be better equipped. The rhetorics and rants of the military media department is expected. When a large swath of the military are being sentenced to death for voicing out this same problem, did you support them? The shame of it is that the Nigerian government has not shown the public proof of what they are doing for the military.... It is not enough to release reports that are largely archaic,acerbic or proverbially arcane

Barracks pickin says:The present chief of Army staff is making every effort to equip the military and he is doing a good job but it's not a today's problem . The former chiefs never equipped our military all were just enjoying themselves , when you build on a shaky foundation what do you get ?
Our military is ill equipped , equipment do not have the technical expertise ,I feel so sorry for our men and women fighting the war, my heart bleds for the dead and their families .
Here I am wondering why GEJ has no understanding of the war being fought , he and his boys are cocooned somewhere living life @ it's fullest @ the expense of someone's father, son , husband and uncle , yet we say we have a country . My vote is my power I ain't voting , though it might / will not count but the satisfaction of knowing no party gets it is enough .
Oooh my heart bleds . May all our men who have lost their lives in this war , may their soul rest in peace , The Lord keep your families .

But y wil CNN go to d mile or extend of conducting interview wit a so called military man witout getting it frm d defence HQ.

Dis shows d military man is fake and d interview is "make up". CNN is indeed fake and biased.

It mak no sense dat a military man wil say he bought his kit and treat himsef. Dat is total fallacy.

D defence HQ is rite. CNN is fakE wit dis news and d so called military is not real bcos they r rules to granting interviews in military set up of which I believe CNN is aware.

CNN is trying to "dent" d image of d defence of Nigeria and d country as a whole.

Joel Thomas said...

I have my doubts....are those men really Nigerian soldiers....i doubt. The heat of the current war against insurgents is in the North East such as Borno, Yobe, Bauchi, Adamawa and recently Gombe. Jos does not fall within this category. why then would a soldier from Jos complain of poor ammunition and kits. There is a battalion in the North East specially trained for the war against insurgency i.e the 7th Battalion. The president recently paid a surprise visit to the troop in the 7th Battalion and commended their effort. We all should join hands to support the military. The military was able to repel the attack on Biu. Soldiers have lost their lives and others have sustained injuries in this senseless war. We should extend a hand of fellowship to these ones. Render support to them in anyway. let us contribute our own quota in supporting the military. CNN should bow it head in shame. What is the motive behind such a satanic interview. The foreign media should direct it focus on the U.S Govt. Till date, the U.S Govt has refused to support our country with military equipments. We are getting our supplies from Russia and other countries. Within available resources, the Nigerian Military is trying and should be commended

@Amdi, that was so wicked and unreasonable a comment to make!! I have seen satisfied Nigerians.
Inasmuch as I appreciate the Nigeria Military (Field Soldiers and Officers), I strongly believe that a meagre N10,000 monthly bonus allowance is, in every truth, unacceptable. You can't expect a man to risk his life for N300 daily and be satisfied. Knowing fully well that if they die, their families might get nothing as support because of the corruption in the country. They can't air their pain, cause if they do, they'll be labelled rebels. These guys fight with sadness and gloom.
I believe the best we can do to show we care for them and this nation is to render our moral support, pray for them, and appreciate ever soldier man you see.

Soldiers are really dying out there if they were so ill equipped then they would have all deserted the battle line. But they are always there fighting for you and me and the least if what all you morons can do is to insult the generals and the rest of them.

Nigeria is currently beyond redemption (in my opinion). The ogas at the top do not care what happens, the stories abt the military offices being under paid etc are quite true. Corruption amongst others has been terribly rooted in the system right from our Independence. Until Nigerian come to say we are TIRED of this, the leaders will keep enriching themselves at our expenses.

YES the soldiers buys their kit themselves, I have lots of friends in the army so I know abt this. No adequate medical care even when they were injured in their line of duty, its so appalling that they have to go through this.. The moral is extremely low. I have to send money to some of this guys, sometimes airtime. And it's a by fire by force job because you can't pull out once you're in. The DHQ shud address the real issues here which is corruption and stop blaming the devil everytime.

If you're ignorant, pls ask questions. Everything shown on CNN yesterday is the truth about Nigeria military. I served as a youth corper in one of the naija delta states and I know what I saw even with my naked eyes. They buy their uniforms, beg community they serve to pay them feeding allowances, charge people for offences so they feed their families. We were previledged to visit one of the oil blocks there and it was from the militant that the Nigeria soldier Oga was asking if we could pass.it just a mess my people. Monkey dey work, baboon dey shop.

Nigerians shouldn't be too quick to judge the CNN's report. We have been following closely the unending cases of mutiny, the bitter truth of which, the average man can spot the rot in either the delegation process or decay in the arms supposedly used to fight BH. Otherwise, I don't see how these soldiers knowing fully well the consequences of mutiny would still go ahead and undermine it.
Corruption is obvious even in our Defence headquarters.
A defence headquarters that is supposed to be the intelligent brain behind our security details cannot appropriately issue an intelligent memo, it rather turned spiritual, referring to CNN as satanic, all in a bid to tickle the ignorant minds of the populace into believing they are in charge. There are bold elements of truth in the report. We need transparency in these dealings, it is better we know the rot and continue to hammer on it than hanging on the drunken trickery of these military politicians.

It's true, CNN got the reports right. my brother is an Airforce officer and he was deployed to borno 2 years ago, during that period, he only called us thrice and whenever he does called, he lamented how they poorly treated and they gives media false reports to covered up because they(military) die like chicken there without even paying their allowance on time. So when they see they have been forgotten, he and some other officers took a risk and flew a bad helicopter out of there, they landed twice before they could reached Lagos. We need foreign intervention and due to corrupt heads, the media have been feeds with lies but their days are number.

God Bless you My Brother or Sister. There are a lot of ignorant pple on Lib. Why didn't cnn state anything about the ammunition and helicopter that USA have kept blocking Nigeria from procuring but they could bring in a military boat last week indicating their interest is only in oil security and not in the unity of Nigeria. America can release images of Baga, but not Boko Haram locations and those of the Chibok girls. CNN pls talk about why USA is hesitating in assisting Nigeria but is willing to aid Syria and Iraq who will never appreciate your help but always pray for the death of America.

So you people don't believe it's true? Nawa o. Have you made friends with a soldier before or you have one in your family? Try and ask around, you'll know the interview is sincere and truth

Quite alright there is corruption in the Nigerian military but it has been so for years and several administration now. It's just that BH has exposed these lapses. However, CNN talk about how we can get ammunition to fight BH also. USA armed Syrian rebels to fight Al asad but are delaying in aiding the Nigerian military. Don't be Biased CNN Cos there are 2 sides to a coin and also 2 or more sides to a story.

Everything is Abt money in nigeria including our soldiers. When u signed up and took d oat to protect lives of the citizens, that should be ur utmost concern first. Yes, dey deserve to be well appreciated for their services to us but those their ogas also were once on the battle field too. You climb in life. One day, by Gods grace, they will leave the battlefield and also be in d office like their ogas too. Finally, let us all keep appreciating our soldiers for their bravery and stop condemning our military system. We re not being encouraging at all

femi emmanuel said...

Yea.... but how do u intend to do that when their is do much insincerity n mistrust on the part of our leaders.

They are covering up the truth. Very soon nobody will join the Nigerian military again.
Nigerian Govt should know there is a thing line between the insurgence fighters and the insurgence. These soldiers when pushed to the wall could cross the line and join the other side (BH) and fight the same govt or attempt another mutiny/coup.

Corruption has eaten into every sector in Nigeria

You are a big idiot! What has foreign media got to gain by "rubbishing" the already rubbished nigerian military. You obviously don't pay attention to current affairs to have no knowledge of the fact the soldiers have been crying about poor treatment for a while now. The so-called rubbished military couldn't even defend themselves. If it's satanic then counter the claims with facts! Nigerians, ever suffering and chopping lies since 1900.... *eyes rolling*

Lucy Ogana said...

@CNN and @richlyblessed said nothing but the truth. I have a brother in the force too. The other day, he called us begging for money to buy his army boots and also complained about their poor state of feeding et all.

Anonymous said...

Ode nie. Bad taste you say yet the so-called military couldn't defend themselves. Present facts and counter the claims instead of bringing satan into what he knows nothing about!

Lucy Ogana said...

Jonathan is destroying himself. What CNN reported, sadly, IS THE TRUTH!!! Some of us hav friends or relatives fighting BH in maiduguri. CNN didnt even say much compare to the direct news we get from our friends/relatives in d army. Although, I was ashamed for my country nigeria, when the news broke on CNN last nite.
God help nigeria. Amen.

Anonymous said...

I know people in the army and yes it is true they buy their kit
Even the police buy their uniform. So don't say and defend what u don't know.

You are nothing but animal in human skin! What has ethnicity got to do with this report?
I know why. You and your entire human flesh-eating generation have been doing catch up for the past 400 years, yet you are still lagging behind the Yorubas in everything. Everything I say.

They won't help us, they won't leave us alone either. Bottomline; 1)Nigeria has not disintegrated, and 2)God is bigger than all the powers put together. Finally, Defence HQ write to CNN direct, express your exceptions in the strongest terms, copy the UN and any other. Merely crying out like this is weakness and victimhood. This is serious!
