Army Commences Review Of Disciplinary Cases

Nigeria Court Martial
The committee of the Nigerian Army charged with the review of disciplinary cases against over 2,000 soldiers will begin sitting at the Nigerian Defence Academy today.

The committee, which is expected to sit for about three weeks, will review all disciplinary cases from the ongoing counter -insurgency operation in the North-East.



    The committee is expected to submit its recommendations for the approval of the Army Council as soon as it concludes its assignment.

    It would be recalled that the army authorities had on August 2, 2015, said that it would constitute a panel to review all of its recent disciplinary cases.

    The acting director, Army Public Relations, Sani Usman, a Colonel, had stated in a press release that all disciplinary cases were to be reviewed because of litigations and petitions embarked upon by aggrieved military personnel.

    Usman also noted that the cases would be treated on merit, adding that the directive for a review should not be seen as a total recall of dismissed and deserter soldiers.
