Nigerian soldier sentenced to death for mutiny cries out on Facebook

A young 22-year-old Nigerian soldier, Fahat Fahat who was one of the 54 Nigerian soldiers sentenced to death by a court martial on charges of mutiny and refusing to go and fight the dreaded Boko Haram sect, has sent out a passionate message to Nigerians on Facebook, asking if they are justified to die even when the army did not provide the adequate equipment and training for them to fight the sect.
According to Fahat, pushing the young soldiers to fight the well equipped Boko Haram without the necessary weapons was like sending them to fight with their bare hands.
Shortly after they were sentenced to death for firing squad, Fahat took to his Facebook page to write the pathetic appeal to his countrymen.
“Hello ladies and gentle men. I am soldier and I am sentenced to death by the Nigerian Army. (be)Cause we did not go to fight Boko Haram without equipment. We ask for weapon instead (they) gave (us) death sentence.”

The details of the so called mutiny reads like a child’s play because some of the accused soldiers testified that they refused to take part in the operation following the failure of the army to provide them with the necessary support equipment.
They explained that owing to a lack of equipment, they lost three officers, 23 soldiers plus 83 others suffering various degrees of injuries after their units were ambushed by Boko Haram fighters during an operation to retake the town of Bulabulin in Borno on July 9.
Some of the accused soldiers said they did not attend the briefing where the operation was announced, while others said they did not join the mission because they were ill and there was no medical personal attached to their unit to give medical assistance.
