The Federal Government of Nigeria is burdening the finance of the operations by multinational forces against Boko Haram insurgents.
The Punch revealed that troops from neighbouring country (Chad and Niger) allegedly pockets N146.25m monthly as feeding allowances from the Nigerian Government.
It was also learnt that the sum is, however, a non-inclusion of that paid by Nigeria for fuelling of the operational vehicles of the foreign troops and other logistics.
A data summary of the N146.2m shows that the 2,500 troops contributed by Chad receive N112.5m monthly while the 750 soldiers from Niger get N33.75m.
Literally meaning, each of the soldiers from the two countries gets N45,000 monthly as pocket and feeding allowances, the same amounts paid to their Nigerian counterparts.
It would be recalled, the purpose of the Joint military group is to flush out the dreaded Islamic group from Northern Nigeria and to halt their incursion into the two Francophone countries.
