Capture
Just a week after soldiers at the 7th Division in Maimalari Baracks in Maiduguri, Borno state revolted against their former General Officer Commanding, Major General Ahmadu Mohammed, the soldiers yesterday May 22nd revolted again at their newly posted GOC, Brigadier General M.Y. Ibrahim over unpaid allowances and ban on transportation services, Sahara Reporters reports.

Reports say at about 3pm yesterday, the soldiers gathered together and marched to the new GOC’s office, shooting into the air and chanting “we nor go gree” songs. The soldiers were demanding for their unpaid furniture allowance which is N100,000 and other allowances as well as the reinstatement of Okada and Tricycle means of transportation which was banned by the new GOC. Continue…

The soldiers wondered why Okada and Keke Napep would be banned in the barrack since its the only affordable means for them and their families to move around considering the vast expanse the barracks occupies, and most of them don’t own cars.
One of the soldiers told Sahara Reporters “If no okada [motorcycles] are allowed, then our small children have to walk to school and our wives will walk to market. Are we not suffering too much already?” he said.

At the office of the GOC, they ordered one of the Army Generals to walk around the barracks to feel their pain, pushing and shoving him intermittently.

This revolt is coming just a week after the soldiers in the Malmalari barracks revolted against their former GOC on May 14th, shooting at his convoy. He has since been redeployed to a different base and investigations on the mutiny according to Military heads is ongoing to ensure the soldiers who revolted are disciplined accordingly.
