Sacked soldiers protest in Kaduna

Some soldiers, who were said to have been sacked by the authorities of the Nigerian Army for allegedly abandoning their duty posts in the North-East,on Friday protested their sack in Kaduna.

Numbering about 50, the soldiers stormed the Kaduna State Government House to register their protest against what they described as unfair treatment meted out to them by the Army authorities.

The soldiers, who arrived at the Government House at about 5.30pm, complained to the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, that they were not part of those who allegedly abandoned their operational base in the ongoing war against the Boko Haram insurgents.

The aggrieved soldiers were received by the Secretary to the State Government, Balarabe Lawal as the El-Rufai was not on ground.

Lawal promised to convey their message to the governor, who would forward their complaints to the appropriate authorities.
