Six military personnel from various units of the 2 Division of the Nigerian Army Adekunle Fajuyi Cantonment, Odogbo Ibadan, have appeared before a general court martial.

The General Officer Commanding, 11 Mechanised Division, Major General Laz Ilo, says the division will not tolerate any form of indiscipline.

The allegations against the accused military personnel include murder, manslaughter, stealing, negligence of performance of military duties, sexual relationship with spouse of military personnel, disgraceful conduct of indecent nature, and scandalous conduct of an officer.

The accused military personnel comprised one on the rank of major, one captain, one lieutenant, one second lieutenant, one corporal and one private.

They allegedly committed the offences at various units under the 2 Division of Nigerian Army.

While inaugurating the 6-man panel, Maj. Gen. Ilo, stated unequivocally that no act of indiscipline would go unpunished under his watch. He charged all to be above board and respect the rights of all in their conducts.

The GOC further explained that the human rights desk has been established at the division for members of the public to launch their complaints about erring military personnel, saying military justice is in consonance with the democratic order and that military law and administration of the law are based on due process.

Ilo stated that the inauguration of general court martial was in line with the vision of Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai, to have a professionally responsive Nigerian Army in the discharge of its constitutional roles to the nation, adding that to accomplish the vision, there is need for absolute discipline.

The trial of the accused commenced immediately after the GOC inaugurated the General Court Martial.

The special court is presided over by Brig Gen Ibikunle Raji and comprised five other members including Col Jimoh Audu, Lt. Col Kenneth Emefiele, Lt. Col Aliyu Emekoma, Major James Mimiola and the judge advocate, Major Diepiriye Biambo.

The Deputy Director of Legal Services 2 Div., Col. Mahmood Wambai, said that the accused Army officers have been given enough opportunity to defend themselves. (Channels TV)
