Nigerian Army Angry Over Abuse Video; Promises Investigation

The Nigerian Army.

The Nigerian Army on Sunday promised to investigate the incident in a viral video where some of its men abused the rights of others at a hotel in Kaduna.

According to a statement by the Director of Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, the video is “provocative and unacceptable.” He said the video footage trending on social media, in which certain persons clad in military camouflage were seen molesting civilians, has been brought to the attention of the Nigerian Army (NA). “The condemnable incident which was said to have taken place at 2Season Hotel and Resorts, Kaduna is an aberration of the values and ethics of professionalism, courage, selflessness and service to humanity which the NA represents.

“As a disciplined and regimented force committed to the supremacy of the constitution, defence of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the nation as well as aid to civil authorities, the NA has zero tolerance for any act inimical to the rights and wellbeing of the citizenry,” Nwachukwu stated

He said authorities of the NA have directed an immediate investigation into the audio-visual footage to ascertain its veracity and to identify the culprits.

He added, “Outcome of the investigation and sanctions against the persons clad in military camouflage, who perpetrated the dastardly acts, if found to be NA personnel, would be treated by extant provisions of the Armed Forces Acts.

“While appreciating the general public for their continued support, the NA urges all law-abiding citizens to go about their legitimate businesses without any fear of molestation or intimidation from any quarter and to report any untoward conduct by troops to Nigerian Army Human Rights Desks at the Headquarters Nigerian Army or the Divisions Headquarters.”
