The Nigeria Army on Thursday inaugurated a General Court Martial to prosecute 70 erring personnel found defaulting in the counter insurgency operation in the North East.
Khalifa said the court would exercise its duties within the confines of the law and military regimentation principles.
He added that principles of justice, equity and fairness would guide the proceeding of the court.
Khalifa said the aim was to encourage compliance with ethical standard and promote discipline to ensure successful implementation of military operations.
“Acts of cowardice, desertion, un-soldierly and other forms of indiscipline has no place in any army executing war,” he said.
The commander however enjoined the court members to be fair in
discharging their duties. (NAN)
