 Chief of Army Staff – General TY Buratai, Calls immediate investigation on alleged extortion of motorists by soldiers in Borno-state

He made the call through the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman via the facebook handle of ‘HQ Nigerian Army’ on Sunday. There were reports that each truck owner pays the sum of N300,000.00k to soldiers for escorting them to their respective destinations.

Following the development, Buratai therefore ordered for immediate investigation over the alleged misconduct by some personnel. He noted that Nigerian Army would not tolerate any act of misdemeanor by any of its personnel saying also that selflessness, dedication to duty, operating within the confines of laws, Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement are the duties of a good soldier.
