The Nigerian Army has debunked a video in circulation showing some soldiers allegedly mutilating a terrorist suspect.

The Army notes that the troops and uniform of the purported soldiers in the footage is not among Nigerian Army uniforms.

A statement by the Director Army Public Relations Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu stressed that
the video is capable of deceiving members of the public into believing that the men in the footage are members of the Nigerian Army engaged in the ongoing counter insurgency operations in the North East and a deliberate effort to promote a culture of violence in the society by creating an erroneous impression that, it is a legitimate action by troops.
