Following the criticism that follow the action of some officials of the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Army has vowed to punish soldiers caught on camera brutalizing civilians inside gutters at 2Season Hotel and Resort in Kaduna State.



It was gathered that the civilians who are staff members of the hotel demanded their salary after cleaning the hotel but the manager of the hotel called soldiers to beat them up.

The soldiers humiliated the workers and forced them into a gutter, seized their phones and threatened them with grievous bodily harm.

Reacting to the incident, the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement on Sunday condemned the soldiers’ action, describing it as an aberration of the values and ethics of professionalism, courage, selflessness and service to humanity which the NA represents.

Nwachukwu said the authorities of the NA have directed an immediate investigation into the footage to ascertain its veracity, with a view to identifying the culprits.

He said, “A provocative and unacceptable video footage trending on the social media, in which certain persons clad in military camouflage were seen molesting civilians, have been brought to the attention of the Nigerian Army (NA).

“The condemnable incident which was said to have taken place at 2Season Hotel and Resorts, Kaduna is an aberration of the values and ethics of professionalism, courage, selflessness and service to humanity which the NA represents.

“As a disciplined and regimented force committed to the supremacy of the constitution, defence of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the nation as well as aid to civil authorities, the NA has zero tolerance for any act inimical to the rights and wellbeing of the citizenry.
