The Defence Headquarters says soldiers on the frontline seen in a viral video insulting the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.Gen Tukur Buratai, will be subjected to observation and counselling.

In a video that went viral earlier in the week, some soldiers in the Operation Lafiya Dole in Yobe State who were ambushed by terrorists were seen cursing Buratai.

Narrating its own side of the story, the military headquarters said some soldiers encountered multiple Improvised Explosive Devices and Boko Haram terrorists’ ambush, eight kilometres ahead of Buni-Gari in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State on May 18, 2020

The military said two soldiers paid the supreme price and three others sustained injuries as a result of the explosion.

The DHQ said additionally, a recovery truck and a water tanker that ran into the IED were destroyed by fire.

The tweets read, “Three terrorists were neutralised, while unconfirmed number escaped with various degrees of injury. However, due to mental snap/distress occasioned by fog of war, two of the soldiers who escaped the IED and terrorists’ ambush recorded the incident with uncomplimentary remarks, about the Nigerian Army and her leadership, which was released on the social media.

“Although this kind of outburst is expected in war, the soldiers involved have been identified and would undergo observation and counselling.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria will remain unwavering in its quest to end the terrorism and will do everything possible to ensure there is no repeat of this kind of traumatic incident/outburst.”
