The Nigerian Army on Friday dismissed speculations that soldiers of 21 Brigade in Bama shot indiscriminately and turned against their officers.
Brig.-Gen. Victor Ezegwu, the General Officer Commanding, 7 Division of the army, denied the report in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri.
Ezegwu said: “I want to assure that nothing like mutiny happened in Bama. Nothing happen. I just came back from Bama and nothing like that happened.”
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that some online publications had reported that there was a complete breakdown of order and discipline at the 21 Brigade in Bama where soldiers complained of mistreatment and began to shoot indiscriminately.
