Military Court Martial trying Commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force, MNJTF, Brig. Gen. Ransome Kuti, and 30 other officers under him, has relocated from Lagos to Abuja.
Nigerian pilot gathered that the relocation is to enable the military court meet the deadline set by the Army High Command to conclude all trials on or before May 29, 2015.
General Kuti and others are being tried for mutiny.
The army general was in charge of Baga in Borno State, when the Boko Haram terrorists struck and overran the headquarters last December killing over hundred people including soldiers, families and carting away a cache of arms.
General kuti and others were initially arraigned on February 2015 before the President of the Court Martial, Ma-Gen. S.D. Aliyu, who is also President of another Court Martial trying Brigadier General Komolafe and 23 other senior officers.
The Military authorities however realized that both trials will be too demanding on the senior officer and one military court, and have decided to set up another court martial to try General Kuti and others in Abuja.
