The human rights group also said the military officers’ properties should be seized and their accounts blocked.

They made this known during a peaceful protest staged at the Abuja office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

They said “We are calling for the prosecution of those sacked military officers on charges of corruption, as well as confiscating of their properties and freezing of their accounts in accordance with the law."

Barrister Cletus Onwu, the leader of the group, also said they visited the EFCC office to express their stand on the issue.

Speaking on behalf of the EFCC chairman, the Director of Publicity, Osita Nwajah assured the group that the matter will be considered.

Nwajah also said “The Chairman will do justice to all the petitions that come before him, including this one that was brought by you. I want to assure you that it will be treated.

“We are very encouraged by this solidarity visit and the request you have made. The Acting Chairman of the EFCC, a man of courage, who has demostrated this by the mandate Nigerians gave him, will do justice to every petition that comes before him.”

Meanwhile, some of the senior army officers who were sacked by the Nigerian Army high command last week, have described the action as unfair and unfortunate.
