Nigerian Army Legal Service Logo

The Nigerian Armed Forces (NAF) is the armed forces of Nigeria. It consists of three uniformed service branches: the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Navy and the Nigerian Air Force. The President of Nigeria acts as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and exercises his constitutional authority through the Ministry of Defence, which is responsible for the management of the army and its personnel. The operational head of the AFN is the Chief of the Defence Staff, who reports to the Nigerian Minister of Defence. With a force of over 223,000 active personnel, the Nigerian Army is one of the largest uniformed combat forces in Africa. [5] According to Global Firepower, the Nigerian Armed Forces are the fourth most powerful army in Africa and rank 35th internationally on their list. [6] The role of the Redstone Arsenal Claims Office is to investigate, process, adjudicate and resolve claims on behalf of and against the United States promptly and thoroughly.

The damage office is open Monday to Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Nigerian Army (NA) is the land branch of the Nigerian Armed Forces and the largest of the armed forces. The most important formations include the 1st Division, the 2nd Division, the 3rd Armored Division, the 81st Division, the 82nd Division and the newly formed 8th, 7th and 6th Divisions. The Nigerian army is currently led by Major General Farouk Yahaya, appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari. [24] The Nigerian military has played an important role in defending Nigerian democracy from the First Republic to the present.

[25] It is argued that the first school of thought argument that the army`s logo is written in Arabic because of ethnic domination is false and completely inaccurate. The main mission of the Directorate of Legal Services (Army) (DLS `A`) is to provide legal services to the Nigerian Army. Other responsibilities include providing legal advice, reviewing Boards of Investigation and Regimental Investigations reports, reviewing petitions and letters of reparation, supervising court martial, reviewing court martial protocols, preparing memoranda on disciplinary matters to the Army Council, preparing and reviewing contract documents, trade agreements and declarations of intent. DLS organizes training programs in military law in various training schools. The Directorate also monitors and handles cases involving the NA before the civil courts and acts as a liaison between the NA and stakeholders in the areas of civil justice administration. In addition, DLS provides general secretaries and lawyers for NA Commercial Outfits. DLS is headed by the Chief Legal Adviser of the Army (CLA `A`) The Nigerian Army Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (NAEME) are responsible for the maintenance of NA`s electrical, mechanical, electronic, optical and electromedical equipment. The Corps also provides technical advice to commanders at all levels. In order to carry out its tasks, NAEME carries out pre-contractual tests and trials to determine the suitability of the equipment to be introduced into the NA.

It also conducts a pre-delivery inspection of the equipment to certify its compliance with established standards and compliance with the technical aspects of the contractual agreement. NAEME also performs non-maintainable and scale-up equipment repairs for scientific forecasting and engineering regulations, as well as research and development to keep pace with military-relevant technological developments. NAEME is led by the Commander Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (CCEME). In December 1983, the new regime of Major General Muhammadu Buhari announced that Nigeria could no longer afford a militant anti-colonial role in Africa. The English-speaking members of ECOWAS founded ECOMOG in 1990, dominated by the Nigerian military, to intervene in Liberia`s civil war. The army has demonstrated its ability to mobilize, deploy and sustain brigade-sized forces in support of peacekeeping operations in Liberia. Smaller military troops have already been deployed to United Nations and ECOWAS operations in the former Yugoslavia, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone. [32] [33] [34] This doctrine of Nigeria`s African military intervention is sometimes referred to as Pax Nigeriana. [35] “The transliteration of the Arabic script on the logo of the Nigerian army reads: Nasruminallah, which means that victory comes from God alone. This particular motto was on the banner under which Nigerian indigenous forces fought against the invading colonial troops. The motto was that of Shehu Usman Dan Fodio, the leader of the Sokoto Caliphate.

[T]he inclusion of the Arabic currency was. of the British. One reason was that the fall of Sokoto in 1903 – and the death of Sultan Attairu – was mistakenly regarded by Western historians as the last formal battle in the case of what would later become “Nigeria”. The iconic flag of the caliphate was captured by valiant horsemen from Sokoto and taken over by the British. It was kept for many years as a British trophy in one of the officers` mess in Kaduna, but returned in an official ceremony just before Nigeria`s independence. The myth has been spun and perpetuated by the British tradition. PROTESTANT NIGERIAN ARMY CHAPLAIN SERVICES The Protestant pastoral ministry (Prot), like the RC, is also a former spiritual military institution. It evolved from a “one-man” office of a British chaplain seconded from Britain in the early 1950s. Today, there are Prot chaplain officers in various formations and units who organize various services for officers, soldiers and their families.

It is headed by the Director of the Chaplaincy Service (Protestant). Be that as it may, legal considerations can sometimes be exempt from all the ideologically motivated positions we have identified above, which today are mainly the driving forces behind individual postulates on a particular issue. A simple examination of the constitutional provisions relating to the anon poseur is therefore desirable. The history of the Nigerian Army Military Police Corps (NACMP) dates back to the days of the West Africa Border Force (WAFF). The corps was initially a small force commanded by British officers. The WAFF provision included Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone and The Gambia. The force in Nigeria had sections No. 1 and 3 in Lagos and No. Sections 2 and 4 were stationed in Kaduna. In peacetime, NAWMP is responsible for crime prevention, crime detection, offender arrest, military personnel support and discipline.
