Anonymous Soldier Writes President Buhari Alleging Gross Corruption

A letter, believed to have been written by a soldier currently attached to the Operation Lafiya Dole, the military anti-insurgency operation in the North-East, to President Muhammadu Buhari, has gone viral on the social media.

The anonymous soldier, who claimed to be a private writing from Damaturu, Yobe State, alleged that the soldiers in the frontline were being poorly treated as a result of massive corruption in the army.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, said on Sunday that the army would issue a statement on the allegations, but the statement had yet to come as of press time.

“I will react,” he simply said.

The soldier said he wrote the letter as a result of one Abdulrauf Aliyu, a private too, who was said to have deserted his base, when he sustained an injury.

The soldier noted that Aliyu did not desert the army, adding that the case of the injured soldier was one among many others who were injured at the battlefield and given little or no attention.

He said, “Your Excellency, corruption in the army is real and it is killing us. While we expect to die in the hands of the enemy, we don’t expect to die in the hands of the army, due to corruption and criminal negligence
