Five military commanders have been handcuffed and detained at the military police guard room at the 23 Brigade headquarters in Yola Adamawa state for abandoning Mubi in Adamawa state to Boko Haram militants last Wednesday.
Another set of commanders from the 234 Brigade are expected to be detained by the military authorities as soon as they leave the MRS Hospital in Yola in a day or two according our sources.
The team includes Lt. Col O.A Agwu and his lieutenants. They equally fled the battle scene in Mubi and allowed Boko Haram militants to take the town with resistance. However, Lt. Col Agwu’s pick up van somersaulted twice and crashed injuring him and his lieutenants as they fled Mubi. A Punch newspaper report claims that over 300 soldiers fled to Cameroon.
