It should be recalled that in the recent period the army has ordered numerous proceedings involving the Nigerian soldiers and officers. Some of the tried soldiers were accused of mutiny and sentenced to the capital punishment. The move was followed by negative reactions, with Nigerians begging court to spare their lives. The military authorities were accused of sending the soldiers to fight against Boko Haram without giving them the adequate weapons. The army tops insisted that fleeing and mutiny made the crimes which deserved death sentence.
