Soldiers of the 21 Brigade of the Nigerian Army, deployed to Sambisa forest to deal a final blow to Boko haram terrorists have reportedly gone berserk, firing shots into all directions, threatening to kill any officer that stands on their way.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, a military insider said:
The brigade is based in Bama but is currently deployed at Bula Bello in Sambisa for Operation Rescue Final. But suddenly soldiers started mutinying at 6AM today, firing in all directions and threatening to pull out of the operation.
As some of them fire gunshots, some started preparing vehicles to move out of location. They also warned officers to steer clear or they would be shot dead. They are saying their commanders have been treating them badly and telling them lies. As I speak to you, the firing is still going on, and there is confusion everywhere.
The Army has not issued a statement on the said incident, and when contacted, its spokesperson Col. Sani Usman declined to comment on the issue.
