Military authorities in Nigeria have reportedly dismissed a soldier after he was found guilty of having sex with his colleague’s wife.

The Lance Corporal according to multiple sources, was dismissed during the week at 231 Battalion in Biu, Borno State.

“The soldier was fired from the Nigerian Army for sleeping with his colleague’s housewife. We’re happy as this will serve as an example to others involved in this act now common in our barracks,” one of the sources said.

Another source familiar with the development added, “Our colleague, Abdullahi has been dismissed at 231 BN Biu. He slept with his regular’s wife. So sad.”

The source according to Sahara Reporters said that the dismissed soldier had the history of sexual indiscipline before he was finally dragged to the authorities for appropriate disciplinary action.

His offence – indecent professional misconduct and having sex with a fellow soldier’s wife – contravenes Sections 79 and 93 of the Armed Forces Act CAP A20, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

The law prescribes jail term and dismissal from service with dishonour.

Meanwhile, when NewsBand contacted the spokesman of the army, Major General Onyema Nwachukwu over the incident, his mobile line was switched off.
