Court-martial "gale" reaches upper ranks in Nigeria

Premium Times reports that a brigadier general and 14 other senior Nigerian Army officers are going to be tried by court-martial, following a spate of courts involving enlisted personnel:
"It is not clear what the officers are being charged for as they are yet to be formally arraigned but our sources say it might be related to negligence in the army's campaign against the terrorist group Boko Haram in the North East of the country.
"The court-martial of these top officers marks a shift from recent trials in the military that have primarily involved non-commissioned officers."
