The Nigerian Army says it is investigating a video being circulated on the social media, which shows Army personnel assaulting some civilians.


The Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sanni Usman, said they were aware of it.

“We are aware of certain video being circulated,” Brigadier General Usman confirmed on Wednesday via a telephone interview.

He, however, said the Army had gotten complaints of the said video, adding that it had commenced an investigation into the matter while the report would be made public.

Usman said, “I don’t know which video you are talking about but whatever it is, we have had complaints of videos online.”



“The General Officer Commanding 82 Division, Major General Adamu Abubakar, is investigating it and whatever it is, we will definitely let the public know about the outcome,” he added.

Meanwhile, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has backed out of the mediation between his group and the South-East governors.

In a statement signed by him, Kanu alleged that soldiers in Abia State intended to assassinate him on his way to the meeting.

He also said his group was preoccupied with attending to victims of the “unprovoked military onslaught against innocent civilians” in the state.

IPOB leader, who had earlier met the governors a few days ‎ago, was scheduled to be in Enugu State on Friday, September 15, for a continuation of the dialogue.

He had met with the governors on August 30, and both parties agreed to hold further talks to seek an amicable resolution of issues raised by the pro-Biafra group.

Both Buhari and Nigerian soldiers who are involved will face
a miserable end. Those who are excited about it are not
different from Buhari and the Army.


Boko haram will end their coward ass lives in a slow and
most inhuman manner.

That's the kind of country we have ...

Nigeria has been buying weapons for war, but it has been targeted to its citizens. Militants, Boko Haram, IPOB, motorist.

The army can say all the lies in the world

The army should know that the international community is taking note of their atrocities and will jail everyone of them at the right time


Self determination is a right enjoyed by the Biafrans

When you force a people against their will & rights, then you are terrorist

Nigeria has become a terrorist nation


A nation that does not respect United Nations law on Referendum is a terrorist nation

Self Determination is a right for the Biafrans.

The army should do whatever is necessary to bring the situation in the south east under control. Human rights of law abiding citizens should be respected but maximum force should be brought down on those who are killing northerners and causing problem in the region.

This statement is the end of the matter and in few days other similar videos would surface, this one would be forgotten and the army would issue another statement promising investigation and the circle would continue till they learn that they have lost most of their rights. I'm talking from experience because I live in the Northeast.

the Nigerian govt have made KANU popular,I trust they will also make the Biafra dream a reality.

As long the Nigeria army remain in the east and continue their molestations the igbos will continue to unleash their anger on the Hausa's in the east and of course there will be a corresponding reprisal in the north.

Nigeria army should withdraw its troops for peace in the country. operation python dance will consume Nigeria and make Biafra inevitable,the Igbo's cannot watch you while you intimidate them with guns.

It's too bad that the military is involved in this, and that's only because of the way and manner IPOB conducted themselves.

The army, unlike other law enforcement agents, are not trained to restore law and order in a civil way; they are rather trained to eliminate every threat to peace, hence the reason we are reading of stories of maltreatment from them - even though we are yet to verify the authenticity of the claims.

Kanu has led his illiterate followers to cross the line, they should pray that they don't get listed as a terrorist militia.

Boko Haram hoisted their flags in the NE and declared some part of the region theirs. They were led by religious extremists and labelled those who didn't submit to their views as infidels and deserved no less a treatment than death. They were treated initially with kid gloves until it became out of hand - the result today is the destruction of the NE region.

Today, Kanu has hoisted his flag in the SE, calling it biafraland even though Biafra ceased in '69. He has brainwashed, this time, with ethno-supremacist views, instigated genocide with hate speeches etc. Even when the FG decided to be lenient he remained stubborn.

What are the differences between the early stages of Boko Haram and IPOB?

If IPOB were to be armed, is it not evidential that they'd toe the same path as Boko Haram?

Let's not deceive ourselves, you cannot tell me you are peaceful when you're perceptibly violent. You dare not speak in opposition to the Biafra movement in a gathering with more pro-Biafrans, you'd see the intolerance in them even to the igbos with anti-Biafra views. Yet they claim peaceful.



It's too bad they want to mess up the region, just too bad!

I know they would come out to deny it.

We won't hear anything again after the supposed investigation.

What a joke!!
