Soldiers Protest in Maiduguri Over Killed Colleagues

Soldiers Protest in Maiduguri Over Killed Colleagues


Soldiers of the Seventh Infantry Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, on Wednesday protested what was described the continuing killing of troops in the mission area by insurgents due to deceit and betrayal.

Investigations revealed that several soldiers were killed when troops of the Seventh Infantry Division ran into an ambush of the insurgents at a community called Muleh in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State on Tuesday.

Muleh is said to be located along the Maiduguri-Biu Road.

Investigations revealed that the soldiers became incensed when they sighted the bodies of their fallen colleagues and friends with several others injured in the gruesome attack.

A security source said that the angry soldiers almost went wild when the General Officer Commanding the Division, Maj-Gen Abubakar Mohammed, attempted to address them.

The angry soldiers were said to have shot repeatedly into the air which made several of their calmer colleagues to run for cover.

It was learnt that the enraged soldiers attempted to attack the official vehicle of the GOC who was quickly ferried out of the Maimalari Barracks headquarters of the Division.
