The House of Representatives is calling on military authorities to recruit additional 100,000 soldiers to make up for the shortfall in manpower that has overstretched the military in its fight against insecurity in the country.It also called on the Nigerian Army to recall retired officers and men and keep them on reserve for use when needed, in line with the Armed Forces Act, Part VII Section 25, provided they are physically fit and not above 50 years of age.
If Boko Haram leader, Shekau surrenders, we will accept him — MilitaryThe call was part of a recommendation by the House Committee on Army which investigated the Auno attacks that occurred in February when Boko Haram attacked and killed commuters stranded at a checkpoint on their way to Maiduguri.
Chairman, House Committee on Army, Abdulrazak Namdaz (APC, Adamawa), who presented the report before the House, said the commuters were not given any security cover or protection by soldiers deployed to secure Maiduguri-Damaturu highway.ADVERTISEMENTDear valued readers, subscribe to the Daily Trust e-paper to continue enjoying our diet of authoritative news.

Giving a synopsis of the report, Namdaz said it was found out during their investigation of the incidence in Auno, that the commuters became stranded at Auno village after failing to adhere to the curfew imposed in the area, hence becoming easy targets for Boko Haram attack.
“If the commuters had adhered strictly to the curfew timing, they would not have been stopped at the gate by soldiers and subsequently attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.“In the same vein, if the soldiers had provided security cover or protection to the stranded commuters, they would have saved them from the insurgents’ attack or helped reduce its severity.
“The insurgents (or at least some of them) would have even been killed or captured, and the casualty figure on the part of the commuters significantly reduced.“This is because the Army does not have enough personnel to hold ground for a long time after defeating Boko Haram in some villages, hence it resorts to collapsing the thinly held and sparsely resourced troops’ locations to form Super Camps.
“With a massive recruitment of new soldiers, there would be no need for Super Camps,” he said.RelatedDownload Daily Trust News App Read more: Daily Trust »
Am not ready to die for their foolishness and stupidity, a country that had no value for human lives. Since all they know how to do is borrowing money( external loans), what stops them from borrowing external soldiers.. Me am very lazy at this Their children first. Another means of looting money and killing people children
Is not about recruiting more soldiers, but about being sincere to end the fight🤷♂️ Haa... Nigeria politicians are so heartless they want to use other 100,000 Nigerian citizen to sacrifices for Boko Haram They should bring their children for this great service. Who will want to fight for this useless country. A decayed country.
If they bring their children,the will be officers and posted to fertile soil Politicians should donate their children It's a good motion After training from Depo Zaria to maiduguri Them get family members and relatives Who will join? This is a good development, hope their families will join them too. They wanted it bcoz the poor creatures would be deployed to sambisa and get killed. But you would never hear them saying FIRS should recruit people bcoz it's only meant for their sons and daughters.
One kid each from senators, house of Reps, ministers, commissioners, States houses of assembly, Perm. Secs, and Local Government houses can really make up this numbers.. they should live by example for once, Trust me we will be happy forever 🚶♂️🚶♂️ So you can killed them by give the location of were they so that BOKO Haram can ambush them.
More sacrificial lambs on the way. They will recruit Boko haram members. Why not Nigerian customs service 🤔🤔 √good They should bring their children onboard. I don't think the Government are capable of compensating them looking at the economic and financial challenges facing the country. How much are you guys paying them? Is it worth it?
This is super necessary ✔️ The problem sometimes isn't recruiting, how are the family of the already slain soldiers coping, have their entitlement been paid, that is if it hasn't been siphoned, how about offering their children scholarship, how about adequate welfarism for their widows and parents nah this matter we dey settle since to watch kindly click on it to settle the matter
They're about 360 reps in the lower chamber... Each of them should have at least 2 children.. That will go along way to help. Anoda 100,000 fresh recruits 2 serve anoda round as sacrificial lamb? 😂😂😆😆 I guest this is a good idea Blood don de hungry dem So them go sacrifice nau, as human being na suya..
Just to go and die in the hands of foolish set of people who don't know what they want...

UNIBEN reacts to rape, death of 100-level studentThe last line in the release is a howler that shouldn't have been included. Telling students to 'be wary of the company they keep and the places they visit” sounds like they are rationalizing the attack. It could have happen to anyone, anywhere -- even in one's bedroom. I think this girl is a someone famous or a politican's daughter, if not we won't have hearing something about it again. That VC showed no empathy😑. She also was talking about 'Wary of the company you keep and the places you visit'. Giving that advice while allegedly sympathizing with the family of Uwa, who was RAPED MURDERED in a church?!! WHAT COMPANY WAS SHE KEEPING? She was in a church fgs!
How 100-level UNIBEN student was ‘gang-raped, killed’ inside churchThe authority of University of Benin (UNIBEN), has confirmed the murder of a 22-year-old Microbiology student of the institution, Miss Vera Uwaila Omizuwa, who was allegedly gang-raped and killed b… JusticeForUwa Wonder's shall never end Why are you just getting this news🤦🏽♀️
Vera Omozuwa: UNIBEN reacts to alleged rape of 100 level student in churchThe management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has reacted to the alleged rape of one of its students, Vera Uwaila Omozuwa. It was learned that Uwaila, who was a 100-level Microbiology student of UNIBEN, was raped and killed by some unknown person while reading in a Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in Benin In Rccg shrine not Church. This couldn't have happened in a Church of Jesus Christ. This is how they get their powers. Who did this? Wicked generation. ChinnyBillz
UNIBEN reacts to rape, murder of 100 level studentThe management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has decried the news of the rape and subsequent murder of one of its students, Vera Omozuwa. JusticeForUwa It is babaric,outrageous & dehumanizing,it must be discouraged.Ladies always follow your instinct,it speaks to your subsconsciousness. Follow me to get more... This part of the VC's statement was unnecessary as it 'seems' to pass a subtle message that victims of the crime of rape or any other crime, are to blame based on where they go or the company they keep. While this might not be the intention of the message, it's an interpretation.
