Nigerian Army reinstates 3, 032 sacked soldiers
The Nigerian Army, on Thursday, announced the reinstatement of some sacked soldiers after their cases were reviewed by a disciplinary committee set up to look into circumstances that warranted their disengagement.
Col. Sani Usman, the acting Director of Army Public Relations, revealed this at a press conference in Abuja.
Usman said the reinstatement of the soldiers was part of the initial recommendations made by the disciplinary committee and that the process was ongoing.
He Said, “You would recall that the Nigerian Army sometime ago instituted a committee to review the recent disciplinary cases in the service, especially of those soldiers in the defunct “Operation Zaman Lafiya.”
“The committee has concluded its initial sitting and has made certain recommendation that led to the reinstatement of 3, 0 32 soldiers out of 5,000 cases reviewed so far.
“The cases reviewed were only disciplinary as no criminal cases were considered, the review is ongoing but the bulk of the work has been done for the time being.”
