Army Arrests Soldiers Who Brutalised Physically Challenged Man In Onitsha Yesterday!



Some good news this morning...The Nigerian Army has announced it has arrested the soldiers who beat up a physically challenged man for wearing a camouflage shirt yesterday at New Market Road, Onitsha, Anambra State. (Read here if you missed it!)

The Director Army Public Relations, Brig.Gen. Sani Usman released a statement to that effect last night. Read it below:

“The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a video clip in which two soldiers were seen maltreating a physically challenged person for allegedly wearing a camouflage shirt. “We wish to inform the public that the incident took place on Tuesday 7th February 2017, at Onitsha, Anambra State. “In line with our zero tolerance for acts of indiscipline and unprofessional conducts especially in relation to violation of human rights, we wish to further state that the soldiers involved have since been identified and apprehended. “They have also been charged for assault by their Commanding Officer. Similarly, troops have been warned to desist from such acts that infringe on human rights and cast serious aspersions on the good image of the Nigerian Army. “The public should please regard this ugly incident as an isolated case which is not true reflection of the Nigerian Army.”
