What other way can you describe Nigeria. 27 soldiers who served in Liberia under the Peace Keeping Mission have been sentenced to Life Imprisonment for protesting on the streets about their unpaid salaries. They were owned 6 months salaries!!!
There is no denial that these men served country and continent.
No doubt, they are owed 6 months salaries.
No doubt, one thief in the Nigerian army held on to their salaries. Still no doubt that the one who stole/ kept their salaries is a free man.
These soldiers have families and children and they were deprived 6 months salaries. I am shocked that they could only protest. They should have actually gone to war with the authorities who stole their monies. I am sure they are regretting that now because they got life sentences anyway.
But seriously, this is the same army that produced soldiers who stole all the monies in the treasury. Those thieves have not been punished for their indiscipline and looting and disservice to the country.
How come these 27 soldiers got a different treatment? oh..! all animals are equal but some are more equal than the others.
In Nigeria thieves like Babangida and David Mark have 2 heads while the 27 soldiers have no head at all.
Can Nigeria be taken seriously for anything apart from stupid things like these?
The families of these 27 soldiers should not stay quiet. I think in their unity they can actually start a very serious uprising that they expose the thief in the Nigerian army who withheld the salaries of the 27 brave soldiers in his/ her private account.
By relentlessly bringing this issue to the fore, they can expose the stupidity of the Nigerian Army in which their husbands / fathers served
