'Temper Justice With Mercy’, Dismissed Soldiers Plead With Army
'We are sorry, please give us our jobs back'.
This is the plea of 524 soldiers dismissed by the Nigeria Army in 2014.
The soldiers were dismissed for various offences, including alleged refusal to fight the Boko Haram terrorists in the North East.
Chief Commissioner at the Public Complaints Commission (PCC) , Emmanuel Ogbole, on Tuesday revealed the position of the soldiers when he visited the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai to submit their case files.
Ogbole said that the affected soldiers had earlier visited the commission and pleaded with it to intervene.
Buratai said the cases would be studied in their individual merit and resolved in the best interest of the nation and the army.
