SHOCKING: See How Much Nigerian Soldiers Are Paid For Fighting Boko Haram

Oluwakayode Olumide Ogundamisi took to his Facebook account to expose the real salary of Nigerian soldiers fighting Boko Haram.

Ogundamisi said that the reality is that their daily feeding allowance is said to be N500.

He said: “Yesterday I stated Nigerian soldiers fighting Boko Haram earn N60K as salary. The correct figure is N49K = $249 monthly or £157 monthly. Daily feeding is N500 = £1.60p or $2.50. Go figure defence budget and please defence budget covers not just the Nigerian Army, it includes all the Armed Forces and allied security agencies. As I dig more from sources and get more documents I weep more for Nigeria. What is being done to those men and women who chose to fight for Nigeria is not just criminal but inhuman. A probe of all defence spendings is needed now! Not tomorrow.”

It should be recalled that in his handing over ceremony the outgoing Chief of Defense Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh lamented that he was in charge of a military that underfunded and ill equipped.
