A former army chaplain, who was dismissed for reasons of sexual scandal has made a request to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to review the decision and reinstate him into the Nigerian Army.
The Lance Corporal, attached to 1 Division Chaplaincy Services (Protestant), Kaduna, argued that he was tried and dismissed from service by a Muslim, Major Jimoh, instead of the chaplain officers.
The soldier’s woes began after he was alleged to have had sex with an unidentified lady, who solicited financial assistance from him, while he was on duty at the Protestant Church, Camilla Barracks, Kaduna, on October 16, 2013.
According to reports, it was gathered that the lady informed him that she was denied access to a patient by the management of the 44 Reference Hospital, Sabo, on the grounds that she was late to work.
The former military chaplain was also alleged to have promised to pay the lady N3,000 to have sex with her, but after having his way, he gave her the sum of N2,000, which led to an argument.
The lady consequently complained to the military authorities, which put him on trial for conduct and led to his dismissal.
