The head of state appointed him as the Inspector in charge of Forces in the Ministry of Defence. Brigadier Milingie’s stay in the south west region was marked by the burning of houses in some areas of the south west region. Some days back, he justified the act by saying that
“We burnt only houses where we discover weapons”
We don’t know if his destitution has something to do with his war fair statics in the south west region.
