Nigerian Army army disengaged the service of some of its officers, an official statement from the Army says.

According to the statement, high ranking officers up to the rank of Major Generals were retired. The statement reads below
…………….

The Nigerian Army wishes to inform the general public that quite a number of senior officers of the Nigerian Army were retired from service yesterday.

Those retired were mainly some Major Generals, Brigadier Generals, Colonels, Lieutenant Colonels and a Major.

Their retirement was based on Service exigencies. It should be recalled that not too long ago some officers were investigated for being partisan during the 2015 General Elections.

Similarly, the investigation by the Presidential Committee investigating Defence Contracts revealed a lot.

Some officers have already been arraigned in court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
People should therefore  not read this out of context.

The military must remain apolitical and professional at all times.

We must applaud and support this laudable and bold initiative  by the government.
