Nigerian Military speaks on soldiers accused of supplying ammunition, uniforms to bandits

The Nigerian military on Friday said the two officers who were captured in Zamfara State for supposedly helping banditry will be dealt with if found guilty. 

The representative, Defense Headquarters, Muhammad Yerima, revealed to PREMIUM TIMES that the military won't permit the exercises of a couple of rotten ones among its staff ruin the organization. 

PREMIUM TIMES had revealed how the Zamfara State Government in March declared the capture of a soldier and his girlfriend for purportedly providing ammo and military uniforms to bandits in the state. 

The state government, be that as it may, at the time didn't give subtleties of the supposed episode, saying it was trusting that the military specialists will do as such. 

Likewise, in another occurrence on Friday, the state's lead representative, Bello Matawalle, suspended the region head of Badarawa in Shinkafi Emirate Council, Surajo Namakkah, for presenting a customary title on a military official blamed for offering ammo to bandits in the state. 

Mr Matawalle's media assistant, Yusuf Idris, in an explanation, said the soldier was found with 20 rounds of 62mm live ammo at the mark of conveyance to the bandits. 

"The suspect was supposed to be at the purpose of giving over the ammo to one Kabiru Bashiru, an occupant of Maniya town, Shinkafi Emirate, and had purportedly received a settlement in advance of N100,000 from the bandits," the authority said. 

Mr Yerima, a brigadier-general, said the military won't treat the two issues softly. 

"Unquestionably, those captured with such wrongdoing will be discipline, as there is no two different ways about this," he said.
