The Nigerian Army has confirmed the reinstatement of 3,032 out of 5000 dismissed soldiers whose cases were reviewed by a committee constituted by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai.
The acting Director of Army Public Relations, Sani Usman, made this known at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday.
Mr. Usman, a colonel, said the cases presented to the disciplinary review committee were treated on merit, adding that the review process was still on.
According to him, only soldiers with disciplinary cases have been reinstated as those with criminal cases were not even considered by the committee.
“You would recall that the Nigerian Army sometime ago instituted a committee to review the recent disciplinary cases in the service, especially of those soldiers in the defunct ‘Operation Zaman Lafiya’, he said.
“The committee has concluded its initial sitting and has made certain recommendation that led to the reinstatement of 3, 0 32 soldiers out of 5,000 cases reviewed so far.
