Nemesis has caught with two Nigerian soldiers who engaged in an unprofessional act against a physically challenged man in Onitsha, Anambra State few days ago.
The Nigerian Army High Command says it has arrested the two soldiers.
The video of the inhuman action of the soldiers went viral on the internet few days ago where the physically challenged man was beaten and manhandled for wearing a military camouflage.
The Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman said in a statement that the two soldiers are facing disciplinary action as they have been charged for assault by their Commanding Officer.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a video clip in which two soldiers were seen maltreating a physically challenged person for allegedly wearing a camouflage shirt.
“We wish to inform the public that the incident took place on Tuesday 7th February 2017, at Onitsha, Anambra State.
“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.” “Thank you for your kind cooperation.”
