Military court convicts, demotes General over leaked video

A military court martial in Abuja has convicted a former Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major-General Olusegun Adeniyi, over a leaked video that showed poor conditions of soldiers and challenges advancing into the dreaded Alagarno forest area.

The clip of him addressing troops and briefing his boss went viral in March.

Adeniyi was then moved to the Nigerian Army Resource Centre in Abuja and subjected to a court martial alongside his aide, Tokunbo Obanla.

The tribunal delivering judgment on Monday found him guilty of violating social media guidelines and ruled he be demoted by at least three years.
