Nigerian Army to court martial 2 officers over Kaduna bombing


Maj-Gen. Edward Buba, Director of Defence Media Operations, said two Nigerian Army personnel are facing a court martial over the bombing incident in Tudun Biri, Kaduna State.

Buba stated this during a press conference on Armed Forces activities in Abuja on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that 85 civilians were on Dec. 3, 2023, mistakenly killed in military drone attacks in Tudun Biri, Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Buba said that the military would punish personnel found culpable in the Dec. 3 incident, adding that investigation was conducted and concluded with a resolve to ensure that the personnel involved were brought to book and justice served for the victims.

“The military has conducted a painstaking investigation into the incident and has initiated disciplinary action against those culpable.

“Accordingly, the affected personnel are to face a court martial for acts of omission or commission with respect to the incident.

“I am however constrained not to speak much about the incident as it would be adjudged as prejudicial being a case before court martial.

“The military will take extra precautions in the future to ensure that non-combatants are safe,” he said.
