'They Are Using Us To Make Money’ —Says Nigerian Soldiers

Nigerians soldiers have taken to social media to narrate the sad condition they’ve been left in, just after 100 of their colleagues were killed by Boko Haram terrorists.

While the Nigerian army, the Presidency and other media aides are yet to comment on the recent killings, however the Nigerian soldiers were heard saying that their superiors and politicians ‘were using them to make money’ in the video.

The distraught soldiers also complained about the obsolete weapons they are armed with, to fight against the insurgents who have a better weapon.

This is coming a day after a disturbing footage of an attack by Boko Haram terrorists which left many people dead, was released online. The worst losses came when the terrorists, overran a military base in the village of Metele in the north-eastern state of Borno on Sunday.


The area is the centre of an insurgency waged by Boko Haram, which was founded nine years ago to bring strict Islamic law to swaths of Nigeria, and a second newer group linked to Islamic State. Nigeria’s military and government have repeatedly said they are on the point of defeating the militants.

However, raids on military bases have continued over recent months, inflicting significant casualties. One assault on an army post on the border with Niger in September left 48 people dead.

An officer among the troops attacked at Metele told Reuters:

From the narrative above they were really "outweaponized"
I believe you understand 'We all [ran away] because we didn’t know where the bullets were coming from.' "Outweaponized "

Can you hear yourself ?
In America, the American soldiers are being equipped with good equipments. No American soldier will fight with a 1983 /1970 equipment in 2018.
The guy in that video is not lamenting that he doesn't want to fight,he is saying the equipment a are bad.
I saw a T72 tank in that video, and I was like no way in 2018.
Can you use Nokia 3310 in 2018? That is exactly what the young, poor soldier is trying to say.
the boy is an ignorant slowpoke...he tries too hard to be a prodigy of that infamous Nwamaikpe; Annoyingly they are too daft to know when they cross the line on important issues... rather than lend their voices, they simply keep exhibiting their stupidity. This is an issue on National importance. Btw, @ Raccoon, in saner climes understanding it's election year... isn't the No 1 citizen to address an issue as this that threatens the territorial sovereignty of a Nation? Do the lives of our soldiers count? Do Nigerian lives matter? Do we speak on Nationhood?

WE HAVE ONLY 2 OPTIONS IF THERE IS EVER GOING TO BE PEACE ON OUR LAND.


1. We must genuinely restructure Nigeria.

2. We go our separate ways.

Until we address one of these options, even in 100 years time, the country will not make any meaningful progress.

Well, the best option will be to kill the oligarchs in the north.
and in the south too.


Without doing so, none of the two options above will happen undecided

What stops NIGERIA from having a unique system that would serve the interests of all.

The only help I can render them is.............to relate with the bloody civilians like human being and like a friend and see them as the strongest weapon (bloody civilian ) they ( military ) possess to survive first b4 guns, armour tank, bomb and the rest. Good relationship with the civilians is the strongest weapon the Nigerian military and paramilitary have to bring down their enemies in seconds but once they ( military )are in uniform with a gun in their hands they act like a GOD that can not be approached. That is the golden help I can render them......PEACE.

indeed the attack was pathetic , but our soldiers also were pathetic ( 100 Armed Nigerian soldiers cannot repel even a thousand BH ?) . truth be told, what type of people are we recruiting into military ? why do they want to be in the Army, are most of them passionate about it or they are there because there is no job in the country and they want to earn a living ? is military a job or duty (sacrifice ) ? ... pls let's think properly why would 100 Armed soldiers panic and start running helter skelter and get themselves killed like bloody civilians . let's understand the root of the problem. this attack is so bitter for me bcs I lost someone who I know doesn't even have the qualities and potentials to be a soldier, buh he joins just to have people respect and now he is late.

You've said it all. Indeed I shake my head in disgust when these fools keep repeating the nonsense about obsolete weapons, poor equipment, and inadequate ammunitions. These cowards are beyond pathetic. An incompetent workman always blames his tools.

Is it not the same weapons and ammunitions that BH loots from your military bases (after you run away like cowards) that they use against you? I mean, look at it. There's no way the BH are better armed than these soldiers! Much of BH weapons and equipment are gotten from the army themselves.

The problem, as you've rightly said, is that the majority of personnel in our armed forces are not even qualified to be boy scouts, let alone soldiers. They joined the military on the back of their connections with one emir, Oba, politician or General Overseer. They joined solely for the glamour nd opportunity to do shakara and oppress harmless civilians in the streets. They don't have the brain or brawn to fight real battles.

They are completely useless. They are nobody's heroes. They died in vain, and I have no tears to waste for them.

Get this, until we completely overhaul our armed forces, and constitute a highly professional and disciplined bunch who know that their duty is not to oppress unarmed civilians, but to confront the enemy, we would continue fooling ourselves

It's only our deeds while on earth, either to man or God that would determine our great beyond ( heaven) and not our religious affiliation. Those who are killing ignorantly, with the shallow believe that virgins await them in hell( sorry, heaven) as preached to them will have themselves to blame when they finally leave here.

2 different soldiers complaining on behalf of their fellow soldiers. The way they talk shows the one complaining most is Hausa and the one with the thicker voice is Yoruba.

The Federal government should stop nepotism! Why most almost all military service chiefs be from the North? What is the procurement department of the Military doing by buying obsolete arms, ammunition and equipments? What about audit department which should check purchase and also what our soldiers are going to the frontline to fight with?

What about the Defence minister? Is it that he doesn't know what his job entails?

Heads have to roll! Investigate all of them and get all that are culpable shot military style and others will sit up!!!!! Put Top calpable Yoruba and Igbo military officers as head of the Army and Air Force, overhaul the procurement, audit and welfare departments of the Military, change top military brass and let the minister of defence be punished.

Doing all the above and improving the soldiers welfare with them being provided with body armour, armour piecing ammunitions, Ak 74, more of anti aircraft guns like ones being seen to be used in syria conflict, yak jets and get more attack helicopters which fly and perform in all weather, fast, accurate, evasive to enemy fire and surveillance, configured or built to operate both night and day and they most have protection against shoulder launched air defences and armour piecing ammunitions.

The Federal government should also arrest and deal with all the politicians and people sponsoring Bokoharam.

The Federal government should go on an all out war against Bokoharam with all arms of the Military as this will crush Bokoharam in less than 2 months.

Seal the borders in the North, constantly carry out air surveillance and let the Air Force take Bokoharam fighters and sympathisers out immediately they are sported; don't ever give them room to escape or gather together! Knock them out with all that you have got even if you will increase the Nigerian fighting force fighting them by 10,000 soldiers who must be heavily armed to the teeth with advanced weapons and technology.

This rubbish just have to stop as the Nigerian Military is known to be among the best in the world, so why play with their lives and kill their high morale!

A word is enough for the wise!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Military men and women can do their job as they are very capable of doing so.

will they listen?

I wonder if you live in America because your post doesn't suggest to me that you live across the shores of Nigeria. Can you compare American army with ours? You must be a joker. I have 2 of my cousins serving in the US military . One nurse and the order an engineer. The nurse is currently on his duty post in the American military base in Germany after spending 9 months in Afghanistan, while the other is in US. The nurse is a captain . The most rewarding civil service work in America is army. You're treated like a king. They pay you as if they've bought your life over. The benefits that come with the job is awesome. Back home, the government would divert the military budget into their pockets. The allowances will be cut down to the lowest ebb by the time it finally lands in their hands. No proper healthcare, no proper welfare, they buy them archaic ammunition at the cost of sophisticated ones. They took billions of dollars from our reserve to buy weapons with no result yet, they kept blaming dasuki for diverting funds meant for same purpose. It suggests to me that, from your post, your one of the buhari boys. Note this, we're wiser now. No amount of propaganda will return apc to office next year. We're tired of their lies.
