A former army chaplain, who was dismissed for having sex with a stranded lady while guarding a church, has asked the Chief of Army Staff to review the decision and reinstate him into the Nigerian Army.
The soldier’s troubles started when he allegedly had sex with an unidentified lady, who solicited financial assistance from him, while he was on duty at the Protestant Church, Camilla Barracks, Kaduna, in October 2013. The former military chaplain allegedly promised to pay the lady N3,000 to have sex with her, but after having his way, he gave her N2,000, which led to an argument. The lady consequently complained to the military authorities, which put him on trial for conduct prejudicial to service discipline and dismissed him from service.
The basis of the soldier’s appeal is that he was tried by a Muslim and not a Christian.
