(Nine Serving Generals to Face Court-Marshal for Treason)
TREASON: Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Minimah is leading the investigation of 9 Generals/Senior Military Officers on suspicion of selling military-grade weapons to Boko Haram.
Also, the Generals allegedly gave Boko Haram tips on troops’ movement, operations and were involved in illegal movement of weapons from the Nigerian Army armouries in various northern states.
Senior Military sources confirmed that during interrogation Boko Haram suspects named the officers and Generals as their arms suppliers. The Army’s investigation was prompted by loud accusations from independent foreign media and strong evidence provided by US/EU military intelligence sources that top Nigerian military chiefs were colluding with Boko Haram resulting in the terrorists gaining rapid offensive capability and upper hand over frontline troops.
THERE YOU HAVE IT, NIGERIANS! How much corruption and indignities can one nation take? How much official criminality is enough? When did treasonable felony become a recipe for successful military career? How can we expect our frontline troops to put their lives on the line for Nigeria when Generals and commanding officers are getting filthy rich on the treasonable felony of selling offensive weapons to terrorists?
For six months various frontline troops have told us in confidence that they refused to go out to fight Boko Haram because the terrorists always seem to know where our troops were going to be even when troops movement decisions were supposedly made at the last minute. Further our troops told us that Boko Haram had offensive sophisticated weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades, Israeli Uzis, Russian Kalashnikovs, mortars, AK-47 rifles, Bazookas and Improvised Explosives Devices while our unpaid frontline troops constantly suffer from typhoid and malaria fever from being forced to drink dirty water from boreholes.
