Nigeria Sentences 12 Soldiers To Death For Mutiny

The Military Court Martial on Tuesday morning sentenced 12 soldiers to death. The soldiers were among the 18 soldiers charged for mutiny on the 13 and 14th of May 2014 at the Maimalari Cantonment.

The soldiers were charged with six count of criminal conspiracy to commit mutiny, disobeying lawful orders and various acts said to be inimical to the military service.

They were also found guilty of insubordinate behaviour, use of abusive language, levelling false accusation against their superior officers, among others.

  9. This uncivilized and wicked. No country in the world will sentence 12 people to death for what, fighting for their right. The Military should revise the sentence or else........

  14. As they were fighting for a just cause though they went about it d wrong way, there should at least be some leniency in punishing them. There should also be an investigation into their grievances which is what triggered the mutiny in the first place

  17. this is crazy !!!......very sad and disappointing, I hope the so called human right activist will rise to the occasion and let these 'heroes' off the stupid and corrupt military jungle justice court martial judgment. The regret is they should have killed the GOC that sent them on such a suicide mission, knowing fully well the extreme danger they were exposed to before the assignment. I bet, the GOC is a Boko haram member.......useless country!

  22. That’s why it is better to be a police man or guguru defender (civil defence) because the worst you can get is dismissal.

  23. This is a part of what they signed for while joining the military. They are not like civilians who rebel and go unpunished.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The truth of the matter is that they shouldn't have rebelled, but the authorities should not have sentenced them to death na.
