The Nigerian Army has sent back the over 3,032 pardoned soldiers in the North-East to fight Boko Haram insurgents.

The soldiers were earlier relived of their job from the military in 2014 over offences allegedly committed as part of the troops involved in counter insurgency operations in the North-East.

The soldiers were dismissed by their unit commanders at the peak of the Boko Haram attacks in the North-East in 2014.


However, latest report by Punch has it that the soldiers had been sent to the 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, following the completion of a two-week re-orientation training programme organised for them at the Nigerian Army Training Centre, Kontagora, Niger State.

It was learnt that the soldiers were deployed last week to strengthen the ongoing fight against the Boko Haram insurgents.

A military source said that the soldiers were moved to the headquarters of the 7 Division, Maiduguri, for deployment in the North East.

The source said, ?The Army authorities have re-launched the 3032 soldiers who were granted pardon by the review panel into the mission area.


?The soldiers were moved to the 7 Division Headquarters where they are expected to be deployed in various locations in the conflict area.

?You know that they were moved to the Nigerian Army Training Centre, Kontagora, for a two week training programme for their readmission into the service.

?They completed the course and have been deployed in the North-East last week to add more value to the operation.?
