Five Nigerian soldiers were reportedly escaped with billions of Naira on transit to Abuja.

According to Premium Times, the soldiers are: Gabriel Oluwaniyi, a corporal; Mohammed Aminu, a corporal; Commander Haruna, a lance corporal; Oluji Joshua, a lance corporal; and Hayatudeen Abubakar, a lance corporal.

The men escorted the huge cash said to be owned by Major General Hakeem Oladapo Otiki in a convoy from Sokoto to Jaji.



The paper said Otiki was in the convoy. But on getting to Jaji, where an airlift was expected, the men decided to disappear with the cash.

“They also removed all their uniforms and abandoned their rifles in the vehicles at the air strip in Jaji,” the paper said quoting an anonymous military source.

However, the report did not state the reaction of Otiki to the thieving soldiers, since the brazen theft happened in his presence.



The paper also failed to state how the soldier-thieves were able to evade the security at the gates.

The army authorities have not confirmed the report.
