The Directorate of Army Public Relations in Abuja on Thursday declared one Maj. Adebowale Bashorun wanted for desertion and other offences.
A statement signed by Col. Usman Abdul, Chief of Staff in the Directorate, said Bashorun had evaded arrest and gone underground.
â€œThe general public is hereby requested to kindly supply report any information onÂ Bashorunâ€™s whereabouts to the nearest army unit or Nigeria Police.
â€œThe armyâ€™s position follows the recent ruling by a Lagos High Court, which maintained that the officer_deserter is still subject to military law.
â€œTheÂ army remains committed in effecting the arrest of the deserter_officer and any other that may fall within the same category,â€ the statement said.
It would be recalled that Bashorun had gone to court in an attempt to stop his arrest for desertion.
