“To maintain the armed forces in a state of readiness, the military as an institution must be ready to enforce internal discipline effectively in accordance with the extant laws,” the Theatre Commander stated.

“The military has its code of service discipline to meet its peculiar disciplinary needs. In this regard, emphasis shall be laid on statute laws and the traditional military regimentation with due adherence to the fair hearing requirements as enshrined in the Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria as amended,” he noted.


Also speaking, the President of the General Court Martial, Maj Gen. Bainze Mohammed, said there are 28 officers to be tried while the remaining 130 are soldiers serving in the various units of the operation ground.
