Army Officer Absconded After Being Convicted Of Killing Soldier


Confirmed reports indicates that an army officer convicted on Friday, February 7, by a General Court Martial (GCM) sitting at the Army Headquarters Garrison, Abuja, has disappeared into thin air.

sources gathered that the GCM, which was presided over by Maj-Gen. GA Umelo, had four other members, as well as a Judge Advocate (JA). According to the report, the fleeing officer, one Major A. A. Oseni (N12127), was charged alongside Major O. U. Osawe (N/12004), Captain S. E. Amosu, (N/13041), and 2Lieutenant N. B. Dogary (N/16390), for alleged manslaughter. The report noted that the offence is punishable under section 105 of the AFA Cap A20 LFN 2004.

Specifically, the three accused officers were convicted for unlawfully causing the death of 09NA/63/3803 Lance Corporal Collins Benjamin. In military parlance, the alleged offence is referred to as “forward rolling.”

The newspaper added that a senior officer noted that the incident occurred when the convicted officers were being “matched” to the office of the Mess Manager, Capt JE Akwaraonwu.

The officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said they had hardly reached the office, when the “wanted” convict sought permission from the Liaison Officer (LO), one Captain KS Chime, to ease himself.
