Metro 'Protest Again,Get Evicted From Barracks'-Nigerian Army Warns Soldiers Wives



Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah, Nigeria's Chief of army staff on Tuesday threatened to evict the wives of Nigerian Soldiers who stage protests against the army.

DAILY TRUST reported that Minimah issued the threat while addressing soldiers of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Enugu during his familiarisation tour of the Division. He said, "If they repeat it, all those wives will leave the barracks. This is not a civil service organisation. This is not a Boys Scout organisation. Any repeat of such act, I will tell soldiers to use koboko on the wives and bundle them out of the barracks".

"Your wives cannot dictate how you should be employed. Bring your wives up in the normal regimental ways of the army. Protests by soldiers’ wives is absolutely wrong. Soldiers wives have no role in the Nigerian army".

"If you are tired of the army, you quietly pack your things and go away; don’t come to ridicule the army",he warned the soldiers.
