    Nigerian Army Rebukes Its Officer Who Was Caught Assaulting A Youth Corper in Calabar

    Nigerian Army

    The Nigerian Army has called one of its officers’ behaviour in a now-viral video assaulting a corps member “highly unprofessional and unacceptable.”

    In the video, the female officer can be seen pouring water on the corper after ordering her to kneel before her. The officer, according to reports, decided to punish the copper for arguing with her.

    According to a statement issued by the Nigerian Army spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, an investigation into the incident has been launched, and the officer has been identified and sanctioned in the interim and will be subjected to regimental orders (trial) in accordance with the existing provisions of the Army Force Act.

    The statement reads

    ”The Nigerian Army (NA) has taken cognizance of a video clip currently making the rounds on the social media, where a female officer was seen dehumanizing a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Calabar, Cross River State. This act is not only condemnable but unprofessional and against established precepts of discipline in the NA.

    The NA has remained undoubtedly the pride of the nation, a symbol of national unity that has consistently been in the vanguard of respect for the fundamental human rights of the citizenry. It is against this premise that the NA condemns this unimaginable level of an infraction by personnel in its ranks. 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.

    For the records, the ugly incident happened in 13 Brigade, Calabar. The Brigade Commander immediately instituted an investigation and the officer involved has been identified and sanctioned in 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.

    The NA wishes to reiterate and assure the general public that such infractions would not be tolerated by its personnel.

    The NA also reassures that the rights of the citizenry is sacrosanct and must be respected by all personnel of the NA, as any form of infraction will be severely dealt with.

    Therefore, the general public is enjoined to continue to report such infractions, as Human Rights Desks in all formations of the NA are emplaced to deal decisively with such erring personnel.

    The NA further wishes to tender an unreserved apology to the victim, her family members, friends, National Youth Service Corps and to Nigerians in general for the unwholesome treatment meted out to the Corps member.”

      I have given up on Nigeria. There is nothing good that can be heard about the country.
