The Nigerian Army has spoken on a video making the rounds of a soldier beating up a civilian.
In the viral video, an Army officer whose identity was not revealed, was seen flogging a driver over his inability to offer a bribe.
The incident was alleged to have happened along Jos-Keffi axis.
In a statement on its official Twitter page, the Army stated that the video was old and should not be used as a yardstick to assess the soldiers.
The statement read “The Nigerian Army remains professional in the discharge of its constitutional roles. The video in circulation is not recent thus not valid nor a yardstick to measure today’s soldier. This is an old video.”
