The Nigerian Army has said it is investigating a video being circulated on the social media, which shows Army personnel assaulting some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
In the three-minute clip, a flag of Biafra could be seen on the ground in front of the men who laid face down. They were eventually flogged and forced to drink and sleep inside dirty water.
Although, DAILY POST cannot verify the source of the viral video that surfaced yesterday, the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sanni Usman, has said the military hierarchy was aware of it.
He told newsmen Wednesday night: “We are aware of certain video being circulated.
“We have gotten complaints of the said video, and have commenced an investigation into the matter and the report would be made public.
“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.

This assault, harassment is a problem in this country.it’s an everyday occurrence. It’s not only soldiers but all military and paramilitary (uniform men). This has got to stop!
This is really inhumane
The video in question is so recent. Nigerian army… they commit an inhumane action and they investigate it.. horrible!
Are they saying that they’re not aware or that the video is fake?
