The Nigerian Army has been dragged before the Federal High Court in Abuja over the continous detention and unlawful arrest of Lance Corporal Martins and his wife, Mrs Victoria Idakpini earlier this month.Lance Corporal Martins had earlier released a video where he criticize the security chiefs and lament about lack of enough ammunitions to fight terrorism in the north.In the video which went viral on June 23, Martin's could be see saying he knows the consequences of his actions and he was ready to face it.

He was arrested shortly after he shared the video online and just days later, his wife Mrs Victoria Idakpini was also arrested too.Leaving no one to cater for their three children.

Confirming the authenticity of the lawsuit, Mr Tope Akinyode who's the National President of Revolutionary Lawyer's Forum, tweeted that:

"We are of the considered view that the continued detention of Lance Corporal Martins violates his fundamental human rights much as it violates the extant provisions of the Armed Forces Act".

The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, are both joined in the lawsuit.What do you think of this? Between corporal Martin and the military, who's do you think is more justified.

Is the oppression by the military not getting too much on the citizens this days?

Buhari and his people in government have a problem how can someone behave this way as if they are the first military in the world but buhari and his people chief of army staff will arrest Corporal Martins and his wife is very very bad for the government under buhari and chief of army staff ok but normal who they suppose to arrest is chief of the army staff and mallam buhari because for buhari is not a military person and that guy that you are calling chief of the army staff two of them are nothing only satanic human beings beast ok What I am seeing from this Nigeria government under buhari is criminal action not normal what buhari government is doing with all the people working with him and from there you can tell him that what he is doing with his people in government and the Nigeria citizens are not happy with him and his people in government ok
