He was among a group of soldiers jailed for crimes like possession of fire arms, ammunition and man slaughter.

Corporal John Godwin was charged under Section 106 (a) of Armed Forces Acts (Cap A20), Laws of the Federation of Nigeria (LFN) 2004, for killing five rescued civilians in Yamteke town of Borno State.

Premium Times reports that another soldier, Sergeant Innocent Ototo, was sentenced to life imprisonment for manslaughter after torturing and killing a 13-year-old boy who he said stole his phone. 

Other soldiers were equally sentenced to 20 years imprisonment each for offences on manslaughter, illegal possession of fire arms and ammunition.

The President of the Court Martial, Gbenga Adesina, said that the offences run contrary to Nigerian Army’s rules of Engagement and also against Nigerian Laws and Geneva Conventions which Nigeria is signatory to and which the Nigerian Army as a professional army holds in high esteem.
