Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that there was unease in the Nigerian Army after over 200 senior officers from the rank of lieutenant colonels to major generals were said to have been ordered to proceed on compulsory retirement.
Military sources reported that the order followed a directive from the chief of army staff, Lt General Tukur Buratai, to the military secretary of the army to serve notice of retirement to officers who went through the Nigerian Military School (NMS), Zaria (a secondary school) where they spent five years.
The sources said the army chief directed that the five years the affected officers spent as secondary school students in the military school be added to their years of military service.
