Some Nigerian soldiers fighting Boko Haram have lamented over the condition and state of war against boko Boko Haram territists in the North East.

In a new video footage which emerged online, an anonymous soldiers alleged that they’re are not given the proper and sufficient weapons to fight terrorists, but left with outdated ones.

He lamented that hundreds of his colleagues have been killed while the Army Generals are “eating the money”.

The soldier accused President Buhari of not doing his job and alleged that Buratai and the Nigerian Army Generals were corrupt.

In the footage, believed to have been captured in a part of Borno State, some soldiers were seen at the background while the voice behind the camera walked round an area.

Damaged weapons, vehicles, tyres, tanks among others were visible in the video.

He said: “These people (Boko Haram) are killing us. Nigerian Army, no weapon, nothing. See the weapon they brought here, these ones are not working. These are outdated vehicles, they are not working.

“They just kept them here for formality…just to discourage us in the name of encouragement. They are not giving us anything. Imagine, a soldier is in the war front, no helmets, no jackets. No enough ammunition to help himself in this situation.

“We are not going to take this again. It is enough. Enough is enough. Yes, we die, they kill us but we are fighting to defend our country.

“The Generals are cheating us. It is time for the Generals to stop all these things, Nigeria will hear this. This situation is getting worse, these people are not helping us.

“Mr President it’s like you’re not doing your work. What is the meaning of this? We are crying, we are dying. Our families are there, at the end of the day, they will not get or gain anything. What is the use of the job?

“And they are there calling themselves Generals, they are eating money.

At this point a soldier joins the protest, while the recorder continues: “30 people died here (earlier) and no less than 100 soldiers died in the last attack. Many missing in action, nowhere to be found.

“Government, Buratai you are cheating us, you are killing us. We are not going to take it, it’s enough”, he fumed.

The Nigerian Army is yet to react to the video.
