The Nigerian Senate , on Tuesday, confirmed that three hundred and eighty-six soldiers resigned from the Nigerian Army in the second quarter of 2020, which is well over the three hundred and sixty-five figures previously stated. It also made mention of the soldiers who absoconded from their duty illegally and urged the Nigerian army to try as much as possible to know their whereabout.
The House, however, stated that the resignations were not related to the ongoing war against insurgency in the North-East.
On July 12, 2020, not less than three hundred and fifty-six soldiers in the North-East and other Theatres of operation, applied to the then chief of army staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, for voluntary retirement, citing loss of interest as their reason for disengagement.
The greater number of the soldiers were from the North-East theatre of operation, a development which military sources attributed to the loss of morale, poor weapons, unimproved allowances and the continuous loss of soldiers to Boko Haram attacks.
The approval of the voluntary disengagement of the three hundred and fifty-six soldiers was contained in a seventeen-page circular from Buratai, signed by Brigadier Geneneral T.E. Gagariga for the Army chief.
Consequently, the House has resolved to investigate the alleged mass exodus of soldiers from the Nigerian Army.
At the plenary on Tuesday, the House considered and adopted a report by the committee on Army, chaired by Mr Abdlrazak Namdas.
