The Nigerian Army has arrested a Lance Corporal, who is part of some Soldiers who physically assaulted two traffic wardens at Adeoye Road by Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State, on Friday.
The arrest followed an investigation into a video that showed the uncivil act. Efforts are being made in collaboration with the Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Police Force to identify, locate and arrest the remaining culprits.
“Even as the investigation is still ongoing, the Nigerian Army wishes to dissociate itself from the very reprehensible conduct of the individuals seen in that video. The vicious attack on fellow security personnel or any unarmed citizens in the manner seen in the video is not consistent with the ethos and professionalism of the Nigerian Army and therefore stands condemned in very strong terms,” Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, stated.
He added that anyone found culpable at the end of the investigation will be made to face the full wrath of the disciplinary provisions of the Nigerian Army.
