A soldier identified as Musa Adamu has been dismissed by the Nigerian army authorities 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 ev#l ways as he prayed for them. It is reported that he was born a Muslim and recently converted to Christianity.
The Benue state-born soldier is said to have been in detention for over 45 days while his salary was stopped over 6 months ago.
However, in a video released by Adamu in August 2023, he revealed he had been dismissed from the army.
