On Tuesday August 19th, a Nigerian soldier spoke
with the BBC explaining why himself and some other
soldiers refused the order from their superiors to go
fight Boko Haram insurgents.
He alleged that they were not provided good weapons and ammunition and so gave Boko Haram the upper hand during any battle because the militants are more well equipped.
Now the Defence Headquarters says the man who
spoke with BBC is an impostor. Their statement
That degree of cowardice is not in the character of
a real soldier of the Nigerian Army.
The series of lies contained in the alleged responses of the
faceless person referred to as a soldier confirms
the whole arrangement as another step of the
mischief makers working for terrorists.
No soldier has been sent on any mission without
being armed. Each soldiers answers for his action
in terms of discipline.
Anyone who knows the military reward for mutiny
will not join another person to try it.
The overwhelming majority of the Nigerian soldiers
remains as brave and disciplined as ever. They
will certainly not join any renegade, coward,
deserter or those trying to incite mutiny in the
military to betray the nation at time like this, in a
way that impostor told his interviewers. His
claims are false.
Certainly soldiers are not being sent to die.
We may not have everything now, but we are
improving on weapons and equipment rapidly
