Soldiers’ Wives Protest In Maiduguri Barracks
Wives of the angry soldiers of the Maimalari Army Barracks in Maiduguri, the capital of troubled Borno state yesterday revolted against the authorities of the Barracks causing pandemonium.
The angry military officers’ wives also marched on the office of the new GOC of the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army, Brig-Gen M.Y. Ibrahim to express their grievances over their welfare and that of their husbands on operations. Gen. Ahmadu Mohammed was removed after the first mutiny in the barracks.
Sources said that what started like a peaceful demonstration almost went violent when an officer slapped one of the protesting women, an act which drew the ire of other women who went forceful in their demand for the restoration of Okada as a means of transportation within the barracks among other requests.
