Sadly, it is very true. Even those who are fighting Boko Haram, the meager allowance they pay them is really shocking.

Wow

This country is so messed up. If the soldiers are collecting peanuts, that means police and other paramilitary officers will receive next to nothing as salary.

This new salary regime is shockingly poor. How can they manage life with such pay and how can the much needed motivation and morale in action especially those fighting Boko Haram be got. Government should pay the least member of the armed forces and police N100000.

It is not just about the pay. For the heroes who lost their lives in the fight against insurgency, their families are usually neglected. The government don't even care to know how the families that the heroes left behind are faring except for those who died as a highly-ranked personnel. I really feel for the widows and children of those who lost their lives who don't usually have anyone to support them. Indeed, Nigeria is not worth dying for.

Generals earn almost a million, captains and the other commissioned officers earn pretty high, just by sitting in their offices or comfort zones and dishing out orders. The real soldiers are those on battlefields risking their lives daily. The least paid soldier should earn nothing less than 150k. I rest my bleeping case.

these arms and bullets where found in the container of food shipped to Nigeria from France to IDP in Maiduguri.

I'm suspecting France is seriously against Nigeria.
