Nigerians have reacted adversely after Lance Corporal Martins, the soldier that called out the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Tukur Buratai was arrested within the week.
Emotions fly as soldier that called out Buratai was arrested
A former Director of Strategy/Communication under President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Jackson Ude published the video which is produced below.
Introducing the video, Mr. Ude tweeted:
In December 2018, some Nigerian soldiers refused to deploy to Maiduguri to fight Boko Haram. They were all driven in a military truck to Mogadishu Barracks, Abuja.
They were severally tortured and locked up. 8 of them died from the torture and the military covered it up till date
Lance Cpl Martins who made the video against the military chiefs that went viral must not die.
Buratai and his gang of thieves have killed more soldiers by stealing resources meant for arms and welfare of military men.
After almost 40yrs in service, he has nothing more to offer!”

TimDocThumbs up @TimDoc4
This act is mutiny and is punishable by death but He dammed the consequences to speak out.
It speaks volumes of the mess Nigeria is entangled in. The young officer has sacrificed his life for the sake of Truth and Justice.
This soldier is a hero, we should not allow this man to die. The impunity is at a level never seen in the history of this country. Nobody speaks in Nigeria now without being arrested or killed in some funny way. Is this the change Nigeria voted? I am ashamed too my broda
Nigeria gives me so much pain..A country with no clear vision. Some will say the Lance corporal should have shown loyalty to who? Nigeria or the failed system. The Nepotism openly displayed by this Government is heart breaking.

For the love of his dear country Nigeria he did this, but little does he know Nigeria is lost and irredeemable. The Fulani’s have their own plan.

Northern Muslims won’t talk about it because the army chief is their son, brother, uncle and husband.
