The Nigerian Army yesterday exonerated the commanding officer of the 103 battalion, Lt. Col Anthony Wende over a purported petition written to President Goodluck Jonathan on the counter insurgency operations in the North East.
This came on the heel of some online media that have recently reported that a letter was written by the commanding officer to the president alleging corruption and that the military did not have the requisite weapon to prosecute the current counter insurgency war against the Boko Haram insurgents.
But at a press briefing at the Headquarters of the 7 division in Maiduguri, yesterday, Deputy Director Army Public Relations? Officer PRO of the Division 7, Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani Usman said the Nigerian army has investigated the petition and discovered that the officer is not the author of the letter.
