NIGERIAN SOLDIER DISMISED FOR PREACHING THE GOSPEL WHILE IN UNIFORM

A soldier named Musa Adamu has reportedly been dismissed by Nigerian army authorities for actively promoting Christianity while in his service uniform on social media. This development follows previous actions taken against him in July 2023 when he was detained for similar activities.

Musa Adamu, who held the rank of Lance Corporal with service number 13NA/70/6100 and was attached to the Amphibious Training School Personnel (ATSCalabar) unit in Calabar, Cross River State, had been using the Facebook name “Aaron Abraham” to share religious messages. In various videos posted on his social media page, he can be heard preaching, urging his followers to repent and turn away from their perceived sinful ways, while also offering prayers for them. It is worth noting that Adamu was originally born into the Muslim faith but had recently converted to Christianity.

During his time in detention, which reportedly lasted for over 45 days, his salary was suspended for approximately six months. In August 2023, Musa Adamu released a video confirming that he had been officially dismissed from the Nigerian Army.

This situation underscores the importance of maintaining the military’s code of conduct and uniform regulations. In many military organizations worldwide, soldiers are typically prohibited from using their uniform or official position to promote personal or religious beliefs, as it can compromise the perceived neutrality and professionalism of the armed forces.
