New Telegraph can report authoritatively, that the offences, upon which the accused personnel will be tried, were allegedly committed in the theatre of operation.
A senior military officer, who spoke in confidence with New Telegraph Sunday night, said: “Though you don’t give good coverage to what I tell you, but know that trial of those guys I earlier spoke about, begins tomorrow (Monday).”
It will be recalled that the Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Brig.Gen. Victor Ezugwu had inaugurated a General Court Martial (GCM),
While inaugurating the GCM, Ezugwu had said: “As you are all aware, discipline is the bedrock of the military profession and to have a disciplined body of officers and men, there must be justice because it is when there is justice that discipline can be achieved.
“Justice implies that infractions of the law must be promptly reported, investigated and the accused persons prosecuted within a reasonable time through the laid down rules, regulations and procedures.”
