"Audio Arrest"- Nigerians Demand Proofs As Army Announce Arrest Of Soldiers In Viral Rap£ Threat Video

Nigerians are demanding to see proofs that two soldiers seen in a viral video,
threatening to r*pe mothers, wives and daughters of some youths in Warri, Delta state, have been arrested as claimed by the Nigerian Army.

In a backlash that immediately trailed the Army's announcement that the soldiers have been arrested in Lagos, some Nigerians, including popular investigative journalist with Premium Times, Fisayo Soyombo, accused the military of having a record of covering up the crimes of its errant officers.

To buttress the claim, Soyombo cited as instance, the case of some soldiers who tortured a civilian in Mararaba, Nasarawa state, in 2015 that were later freed by the Army despite repeated assurances they would be handed over to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for prosecution.

Aynaijang News recalls that in the disturbing video which went viral on Friday, the officers threatened the people of Warri in Delta, particularly mothers, wives and daughters, saying their planned action was in retaliation of the alleged murder of their colleague in the state.

Some youth protesting the killing of Joseph Pessu, a Warri resident, by a soldier enforcing the lockdown in the state, had reportedly beaten another soldier to death.

However, in a series of tweets on Friday evening, the army said the officers who threatened to molest women were arrested at the Ikeja military cantonment in Lagos state on Friday.

“Soldiers in a viral video using uncouth and uncivilized language purportedly threatening to molest women in Warri Delta State were arrested at 9 Brigade Ikeja Military Cantonment Lagos State today 3 April 2020 and further investigation is ongoing,” one the tweets read.

“The general public should be assured that the investigations 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 circumstance.

“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.”
