The Nigerian Army Press Release
Thankfully, the video went viral and caught the attention of the Nigerian Army. Through their official Facebook account, the Nigerian Army issued a statement to address the issue. The Nigerian Army described the actions of the officer as unprofessional and against established precepts of discipline in the Nigerian Army.
According to the released statement,
“The NA therefore, condemns in strong terms, this act of gross misconduct. Undoubtedly, the officer’s actions have caused the NA monumental embarrassment and are highly regrettable. This unfortunate act of indiscipline does not in any way represent the NA and will not be condoned in its entirety.”
Additionally, the Nigerian army made it clear that such a gross act will not be condoned as the rights of citizens are sacrosanct and must be respected by all personnel of the Nigerian Army.
Moreover, the defaulted officer is set to undergo trial. The released statement assured the general public that;
“The officer involved has been identified and sanctioned on the interim and would be made to undergo regimental orders (trial) in line with the extant provisions of the Armed Forces Act. The submission that the Brigade attempted covering up was therefore misleading, as the NA remains a professional force that has zero-tolerance for indiscipline amongst its personnel.”
Furthermore, apologies were rendered to the victim, her family, National Youth Service Corps, and all Nigerians. Finally, the Nigerian Army appealed to Nigerians to continuously report gross conducts of its officers as Human Rights Desks in all formations of the NA are emplaced to deal decisively with such erring personnel.
