Soldier dismissed over theft of gold jewelry worth N35 milli

A Nigerian female soldier has been dismissed after confessing to stealing gold jewellery said to be worth N35 million.

The female soldier identified as Lance Corporal Jonah Comfort with service number 15NA/74/4422F, was attached to an army general's wife in Kaduna.

Reports showed that Comfort committed the offence earlier in May.

She was said to have entered the senior officer’s room and stole the jewellery.

She later sold the jewellery to a jeweller in Kaduna for N5 million.

According to SaharaReporters, “The army authorities have been careful over the issue because the general’s wife is a full housewife, so how come she has jewellery worth millions of Naira?

"The jewellery stolen by the soldier which was valued at N35 million was just part of her collections."

It was discovered that the female soldier had long been monitoring the woman before stealing the jewellery worth N35 million which she later sold to one jeweller for N5 million but unfortunately she was caught.
