Soldiers, tackling insurgency in the Northern part of the country have decried poor provision of equipment.

The aggrieved soldiers, at the Maimalari barracks besieged the headquarters of the Theatre Command in Borno State, shooting sporadically into the air on Thursday night following their deployment.

They cited non-payment of allowances and poor equipment as reasons for their rebellion.

Some of the soldiers who spoke under anonymity recall how a whole unit that went for reinforcement when Marte was captured last month, perished under superior firepower of the enemy forces.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari approved $1 billion for the purchase of security equipment to fight insecurity in the country, before the immediate past Service Chiefs left office.
