The Nigerian army is being accused of systematically cleansing the army of Christians.
200 personel were prematurely retired in the first quarter of 2019 and more recently another 200 have been listed for retirement. Out of the 200, about 190 of them are Christians from both Northern and Southern Nigeria. No reasons have been given for the premature retirement.
This had generated unease and disquiet in the military formation and even though many are unhappy about this, they have no option but to accept the rather strange actions.
It is also being reported that security formations have been engaged in secret recruitment of personel most of whom are Muslim northerners. The worrying situation is that they ordinarily won’t be qualified for this process but critical criteria and qualifications are waived for them.
Most of those hired can barely speak a word of English and need everything translated to Hausa.
Also promotion exams in some agencies like the DSS have been suspended indefinitely. A move widely believed will leave room for illegal promotions of preferred operatives.
This is a worrying situation and needs to be urgently addressed to prevent the islamization of our security forces.
