The exercise was to be held in Niger state will now hold in Jaji according to The Nation.

According to the signal, the review will also look into cases of men under detention, trial or convicted by GCM in respect to disciplinary cases emanating from erstwhile Operation Zaman Lafiya to NAPKC in Jaji, Kaduna state. 

Majority of the soldiers were dismissed following the fall of the home town of the former chief of Defense staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh to the outlawed Boko Haram group earlier in the year. 

The attack led to a mass dismissal of men and trial of some officer under the Operation Zaman Lafiya for negligence without strict military guidelines for dismissal of officers and men.

The affected officers and men had appealed against their summary alleging that they were not tried but were handed down with their dismissal while some are still at the detention camp in Jos, Plateau state.
