A Plea For Condemned Soldiers

Recently, the Nigerian Army court martialled one general and14 other senior military officers for various offences they committed in the war against insurgency in the northeastern part of the country. Last year, 54 soldiers from the 111 Special Forces Battalion attached to the Seventh Division of the Nigerian Army with headquarters at Maiduguri, were found guilty of mutiny and sentenced to death by firing squad. The soldiers were found guilty of disobeying a direct order from a superior officer, after they were commanded to take part in an operation to dislodge Boko Haram from Delwa, Bulabulin and Damboa towns in Borno State. Prior to that, 12 soldiers had been sentenced to death by firing squad; they were found guilty of incitement and mutiny against their commanding officer. The general defence of all the soldiers was that they refused to obey the orders, because they were not provided with the requisite combat and support equipment to prosecute the operation.
