FLASH| Soldiers Protest Over Unpaid 6 Months’ Allowances

by on April 28, 2016

About two hundred soldiers who fought in the AU Peace-keeping operation in Guinea Bissau in 2015 say they have been denied six months’ allowances.

Some of the affected soldiers of 158 Task Force Battalion situated in Gubio Local Government Area of Borno state told journalists in Yola , Adamawa state, that the failure by military authority to pay the allowances is already generating tension in the affected battalion.

A soldier among the affected soldiers said they were in Yola purposely to express their displeasure to the press so that those concerned will release their outstanding allowances.

He lamented the fact that ‎men committed to fighting Boko Haram have been starved of their allowances despite their sacrifices, adding that the development is also affecting the fight against insurgency.
