The Nigerian Army has announced the arrest of its officers who were seen in a viral video threatening to rape some women in Warri.

They made this known in their Twitter handle.

The information reads:

“Soldiers in a viral video using uncouth and uncivilized language purportedly threatening to molest women in Warri Delta State were arrested in 9 Brigade Ikeja Military Cantonment Lagos State today 3 April 2020 and furth investigation is ongoing

“The general public should be assured that the investigation will be swift and fair in accordance with applicable military laws. The outcome of the investigations will determine the most appropriate disciplinary measures that can be taken in the circumstances.

“The Nigerian Army Wishes to reiterate that it would not tolerate any form of irresponsibility and indiscipline on the part of any of its personnel”

TNL recalls that the Delta State Government had earlier urged the public, particularly Deltans, to discountenance the said video clips, saying it was concocted and therefore, fake.

“While we appeal to our people to remain law-abiding, it is imperative to state that videos trending in social media are not a true reflection of happenings in the state”. The government said.
