The Nigerian Army has recalled many soldiers who were previously dismissed for refusing to fight Boko Haram, reports say.
The recalled soldiers are currently being screened at the Jaji military cantonment in Kaduna State, according to Daily Trust.
A source said:
“The soldiers are all there in Jaji cantonment awaiting their turns to be screened by the committee and whoever scales through might be recalled.”
“It was their prayer that if General Muhammadu Buhari becomes president, he might recall them.”
“These soldiers are trained and it is very dangerous and wasteful if the federal government terminates their employments.”
Many soldiers were disciplined by the previous military leadership for refusing to join the anti-terror fight after they complained of inadequate equipment.
