At the opening ceremony of a three-day Transformation Seminar organised by the Nigerian Army, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, disclosed that there were traitors in the army who leaked vital information on military operations to the Boko Haram insurgents.
He warned such officers to desist from such acts or face the wrath of the law.
The event which held in Abuja, had as its theme, “Building capacity of the Nigerian Army to meet contemporary challenges.”
Ihejirika said, “Let me use this opportunity to warn officers and soldiers who indulge in giving out information both from Army Headquarters and other formations certain vital information that had one way or the other worked negatively in our operations.
“There are also some other soldiers that have been found posting negative comments in the internet and also some had been engaged in conversing with insurgents.”
He spoke about a particular soldier who gave out information on the movement of troops to Mali. The troops were subsequently attacked near Okene, Kogi State. He said that the officer has been apprehended and would be court-martialled.
