An Army court martial on today sentenced a soldier to death for killing a suspected Boko Haram militant in Borno State.

Lance Corporal Hillary Joel was convicted for killing the suspected terrorist during a cordon and search operation in Damboa local government area of the state.

    IF I WAS in the Army and I hear this type of a case, I will just retire immediately and go back to the village and farm.
    WHAT THE HELL is going on in this country?

    Sentencing a Soldier to death for killing a boko haram figher who must have killed scores of innocent law abiding Biafrans?

    Truely, there‘s fire on the mountain in this country.

    If this patriotic soldier is harmed,then the Biafrans must intensify their separation from this benighted country. This man is being prosecuted because of his ethnicity and religion period. Let us divide the country amicably and folks go back home to their fatherland.
