A soldier identified as Musa Adamu has alleged that he has been dismissed from the Nigerian Army for preaching about Jesus Christ while in service uniform on social media.
It would be recalled that in July 2023, Adamu, a Lance Corporal with service number 13NA/70/6100 and attached to Amphibious Training School Personnel (ATSCalabar) unit in Calabar, Cross River State, was locked up for preaching while in the uniform.
In some videos seen on his page, the soldier with the Facebook name “Aaron Abraham” is heard telling his followers to repent and turn from their evil ways as he prayed for them.
The Benue state-born soldier, who was born a Muslim and recently converted to Christianity, is said to have been in detention for over 45 days while his salary was stopped over six months ago.
However, in a video released on his social media on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, Adamu revealed he had been dismissed from the army.
The soldier added that the military dropped him at St. Patrick’s College, Ikot-Ansa, in Calabar after his dismissal.
