According to the news outlet, the deceased in the notes said: “My encounter with co – Lt Col NY Suleiman Baburka; I first met him in 7615 Roon when he reported as my Co. He started acting bias and was telling me how my uncle- Maj. Gen. EA Anaryw tasked him to put an eye on me. In which armies of the world is that done?
He always called me a li@r & don’t trust me – I don’t expect his trust & I am a Junior Colleague of his, I deserve to be treated with dignity. He calls me a dr¥nk. I applied for Pass to enable me Process my late mother’s d£ath benefit. My Co opined that there was ban on leave & Passes, after I spoke to the Command, he insisted that I Present him with the Chat btw myself & the Command.
I lost my Son & demanded to go & b¥ry my child, he went further to say I am a li@r & later approved Six (6) days for me. When funds for election was given by the Comd, he held to my own and insisted he was going to send mine to my wife. Who does that?
I met my co on the 20th March 2023 to permit me go to my house in Jummy’s court to enable me have change of Camouflage because the one on me was too dirty, he Permitted me and did not give me a specific timing. I came back after 3 hrs of organizing myself, only for my Co to issue me 3 days extra duty.
Whenever he speaks to me in his office, he raises his Voice and always ask me to get out of his office. He calls me a wounded liar in front of Soldiers. I expect as my superior, let him mentor me and not me constantly insulting my post.”
