Americans say, "In God We Trust;" by God's grace, Boko haram will not continue to kill our soldiers. Every evil that 'terrorist writers' like @fisayosoyombo may wish our soldiers shall come upon him and such writers. The last child of my mother is a soldier.
It would have been an aberration if @ChidiOdinkalu doesn't agree with anyone who has everything or anything awfully damaging to write about Nigeria since 2015. @fisayosoyombo must have assimilated all the evil plots at @thecableng to become d 'terrorist writer' that he is today.
His article is nothing but tantrums of an underemployed journalist. Its hard times. If truly Nigerian soldiers are horribly ill-equipped, then we should have praises for BURATAI, for building soldiers who are willing to confront world's 2nd deadliest terrorist group, barefisted.
Its hollowly infantile to conjure fable about d Army, based on delusion. The writer assumed all it takes to convince a soldier to go confront death are modern weapons & wages. Fela called them ZOMBIES. One has to be one, to be willing to die for Nigerians, a people who dont care.
In the hunger-stricken write up @ChidiOdinkalu brought up for your attention, the writer googled and grossly misunderstood the period a Russian invented AK47 as the year all AK-47 rifles are made. Oda!! Who will help me tell them firearms have 'issue year' and models like cars?
Contrary to the fake news article, its very unlikely Nigeria has any T-12 tanks. I call on @MurtalaIbin to help us confirm this. A Google search showed it was a mid-size tank that didn't get past prototyping and only 25 was made before it was discontinued.…
My checks with relatives and friends in the Army revealed Nigeria has T-55 & T-72 tanks, and other variants. If its T-55 that Fisayo deceitfully referred to as T-12, fact is two-thirds of all military in the world keep T-55 & T-72. North Korea has 2000!…
As of November 08, 2016 when i visited Sambisa, Kurmi, and Ikom, I gathered the Army has a whooping 30,000 men, grouped in tens of battalions in Borno. While majority of d battalions are committed to fighting, there were a few rogue soldiers who raped IDPs, and are ungovernable.
While i served in Yobe in 2000, when there was no Boko haram, there were "Corpers" who absconded their PPA, while some redeployed under forged excuses. Apart from soldiers who are unhappy with their postings, indisciplined soldiers wont have anything good to say about the Army.
Events have separated patriots from traitors. Ask @fisayosoyombo to show proofs he was in Borno recently. But @ChidiOdinkalu led by d nose, by a man he's old enough to father, wants patriotic Nigerians to forge an opinion based of fake reportage attributed to renegades. Shior!!
