The military has reacted to the allegations by the Transparency International, describing it as false.
According to the spokesman of Defence, Major General John Enenche, the issue of corruption cannot be traced to the current crop of military officers.
“A lot has been done to train, boost troops’ morale and procure vital equipment through due process”.
The military “will continue to get better with the right kind of leadership that we have today”.
The military says it has recaptured much of the territory claimed by Boko Haram since the conflict began in 2009. But the reclaimed areas are often razed towns or islands of relative safety and highways connecting them to larger cities.
He adds that under the Buhari administration, the troops are getting the required training and equipment and will get better.
