The Nigerian Army says it is investigating a video being circulated on the social media, which shows Army personnel assaulting some civilians.
Channels Television cannot verify the source of the viral video, but the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sanni Usman, said they were aware of it.
“We are aware of certain video being circulated,” Brigadier General Usman confirmed on Wednesday via a telephone interview.
He, however, said the Army had gotten complaints of the said video, adding that it had commenced an investigation into the matter while the report would be made public.
Usman said, “I don’t know which video you are talking about but whatever it is, we have had complaints of videos online.”
“The General Officer Commanding 82 Division, Major General Adamu Abubakar, is investigating it and whatever it is, we will definitely let the public know about the outcome,” he added.
