Military-court1

Human rights lawyers, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) are campaigning for the death sentence by firing squad for mutiny given to 12 soldiers by a military court in Abuja yesterday for attacking their GOC to be revoked.

The attacked GOC Major General Ahmadu Mohammed who was attacked in May is reported to have been retired by the Nigerian Military.

According to Punch, Mohammed was retired “after he was recalled to the Headquarters of the Nigerian Army without posting for months after the soldiers’ attempt on his life.”

Army authorities are said to have “quietly” retired him in August.
