A group of Nigerian soldiers numbering 60 are to be arraigned before a General Court Martial by military authorities in Abuja on Tuesday (today) for mutiny.



The mutiny was committed when the soldiers allegedly refused to join troops in Maiduguri for “an operation” on August 4, 2014.

The Punch reports that a copy of the charge sheet filed against the 60 soldiers was retrieved on Monday.

According to the charge sheet, the soldiers, comprising two corporals, nine lance corporals and 49 privates, are to be summoned on two counts of conspiracy to commit mutiny and mutiny.

The sheet further revealed that the soldiers committed the offence at Mulai Primary School, close to African Independent Television (AIT) in Maiduguri, Borno State. It said the incident occurred on August 4, 2014 as they clearly refused to join “111 SF Bn troops” led by Col. E.A. Aladeniyi to Maimalari Barracks from where they would have proceeded for an operation.

The charge sheet further held that they “conspired to commit mutiny against the authority of 7 Division,” an offence said to be punishable under Section 91(1) of the Penal Code Cap P89 LFN 2004

The boko haram in nigerian soldier are gradually killing the christain soldier instrumentally but we(nigerians) don't know. They started by send them to fight a well equipped boko haram with little or no information about where they are going, and now the christain soldier has found out their tricks... They(the boko in military) want them to be executed. I hope all nigerians are seeing what am seeing now.
