A lists of phone numbers for citizens to report any unprofessional conduct by soldiers while enforcing lock down orders, has been release by the Nigerian Army.
This action was necessitated by emerging video and pictures being circulated online in which soldiers allegedly torture Nigerians on the streets.
The Army however, described the video as fake.
The coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, in a statement on Thursday, said that the videos were not related to the present military engagement of the Armed Forces of Nigeria in enforcing the lock down on COVID-19.
In a new post on its Twitter page, the military wrote: “Report any unprofessional conduct by Nigerian army personnel during Covid-19 lockdown.
“Send text or WhatsApp message, video or audio recordings and pictures to these numbers; 07017222225, 09060005290,08099900131, 08077444303.
“Messages should contain the exact location, date and time of the incident.”
