Boko Haram crisis: 'Buhari hope' for Nigerian death-row soldiers

Nigeria's incoming president may commute the death sentences of 66 soldiers convicted for refusing to fight Boko Haram, a lawyer has said.
Femi Falana told the BBC that Muhammadu Buhari had promised to review all operations against the militants.
He said that he was now confident the soldiers, who said they lacked weapons to take on the Islamist insurgents, would not be executed and face justice.
This week it was revealed another 579 soldiers face trial over indiscipline.
