Speaking at the 82nd Division during his familiarization tour of Nigeria, the COAS said treason by Army officials would not be tolerated.
He said, “Of course, the issue of saboteurs, which we experienced in the North-East, where soldiers found it necessary to conspire, connive or collaborate with the terrorist elements, we are taking charge of that and very soon, we will identify them and they will go through a field court martial and executed in the theatre.[eap_ad_2]
“It is an offence against our campaign to rid Nigeria of insurgence and terrorist elements. You must avoid being caught in the web because it is field court martial now, no more administrative court martial. You will be brought, tried there and summarily dealt with.
“It is a volunteer army. If you are tired, simply put in your paper and go away. Don’t find fault in the army, don’t come and ridicule the army.”
He added that the Army would soon take delivery of new weaponry and equipment that would enable them end the Boko Haram threat very soon.[eap_ad_3]
