Imagine all Nigerian soldiers running away from fighting insurgency, that means the country is finished.
According to the sun, one of the
soldiers has been running away from boko haram insurgent in the northeast due to a new psychological threat (not because of insufficient ammunition to face the enemies).
It is because the war is taking too long to end and they are now tired and bored.
A reliable source in the military said that the army has been witnessing an incredibly high number of deserters this year alone, especially in the northeast where troops are abandoning their posts.
“They said the pass, which is not more than two weeks, is given to personnel after spending six months in the frontline, was not enough for them to solve family problems which emanated as a result of their absence and it did not give them enough time to stay with their children.
“Others said their long absence has resulted in broken homes where some wives have had to divorce their husbands,” some military personnel told The Sun, narrating how some soldiers deliberately deserted the warfront after getting the mandatory pass claiming they are going to see their families.
It was reported that some troops have been in the war front for more than two years and looks unending to some of them. In fact, some troops were even from a military encampment in Lagos and yet been fighting in the northeast for more three years.
Unbelievable! Soldiers tired of fighting, flee Boko Haram war
Boko Haram militants posing with their flag. Governor Shettima says they have killed more Nigerians than reported.
One of the troop narrated the sad tale of the soldiers in the battle front thus: “Our long absence and separation from our families have ended up turning some of our wives to harlots because there are some soldiers, when they come back on pass, they find their wives pregnant and the authorities knows about this because we always report such cases.
