The Nigerian Army has apprehended two soldiers who were seen in a video maltreating a physically challenged person for allegedly wearing a camouflage shirt.

The incident, which has sparked public outrage after the video went viral, took place on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, at Onitsha, Anambra State.

Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, said: “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.”
