The Nigerian Army has directed immediate investigation into provocative and unacceptable video footage trending on social media, in which certain persons clad in military camouflage were seen molesting civilians at a location in Kaduna.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen by Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu.

According to the statement, while condemning the incident he said that it was an aberration of the values and ethics of professionalism, courage, selflessness, and service to humanity, which the Nigerian Army represented.

“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.

“Consequently, authorities of the NA have directed immediate investigation into the audio-visual footage to ascertain its veracity, with a view to identifying the culprits.

“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 in accordance with 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 at the Divisions Headquarters,” the statement read.
