Boko Haram

15 senior officers convicted

3 Jun, 2014

Ten Nigerian generals and five other senior officers are found guilty in courts-martial of providing the group with information and arms.  The Defense Ministry denies the report.  Anonymous military sources tell Leadership newspaper that some senior officers and soldiers from a particular section of the country are deeply involved:

They have been found guilty of also collaborating with some top politicians in the country to make the country ungovernable for selfish reasons. A lot of reorganization is going on in the military. Many generals will go. Some will be court-martialed and some will be forcefully retired.  The movement of our troops in the northeast have been leaked to the Boko Haram by many of our colleagues, but the Defense headquarters has realized that and is seriously considering redeployment of some senior officers out of the northeast.
