Brig. Gen. Muriana Raji was arraigned before a Special Court-Martial after two detainees escacaped from detention where he served as Commander. Raji was allegedly complicit in the escape. The detainees were suspected members of the Boko Haram.

Interestingly, soldiers directly in charge of overseeing the detention facility were not tried, supposedly because responsibility is being put on the superior officer whose duty it was to ensure that those below him did their jobs correctly.
