127 soldiers, drawn from the junior cadres of the army, are serving in the force’s various formations in the country, despite the worsening security challenges the military is currently combating in some parts of the country.
The soldiers, drawn from various formations of the army across the country, are all of the junior cadres who are mostly at the forefront in the field.
The military personnel, comprising one Master Warrant Officer, three Warrant Officers, 22 Staff Sergeants, 29 Sergeants, 64 Corporals, seven Lance Corporals and one Private, will disengage in May, according to a memo.
The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, a Lieutenant General, has since approved their formal disengagement.
Possibly, most of these soldiers are evading to save their lives first amid the discrepancies in the Army leadership.
