PROTEST AGAINST INDISCRIMINATE AND INSENSITIVE SHARING OF GRAPHIC PICTURES OF KILL-IN-ACTION SOLDIERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

The Nigerian Army condemns in the strongest term possible, the indiscriminate sharing on social media of graphic pictures of personnel who paid the supreme price in the cause of defending and protecting the country from its adversaries.

This act is not only unpatriotic but very insensitive and utterly reprehensible.

Officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army deployed to various theatres of internal security operations are on legitimate duties and are in the harm’s way to defend and protect the country from those who are intent on destroying it.

In the course of carrying out this constitutional mandate, troops put their lives on the line to ensure that innocent citizens and institutions of the state are protected from violent criminals. In some cases, these gallant officers and soldiers are meted with the worst form of savagery by the heartless adversaries whose intent is to instill fear on of the citizenry.

While the Nigerian Army and its personnel understand the nature of the noble calling and are ever ready to confront any danger of adversity on the way, what is most unfathomable is the glee with which some people share the gory pictures of officers and soldiers who are either killed-in-action or Wounded-in-action in the media.

These unpatriotic acts are often done without any modicum of consideration for the memories of the departed personnel or their family members. In some cases, their loved ones do find out about their unfortunate death in such callous manner before they are even contacted by the military authorities. One can only imagine the trauma and pain such families go through waking up to see the gory pictures of their loved ones splashed on the social media.

The Nigerian Army consider this despicable and unpatriotic act totally unacceptable and will henceforth take legal actions to protect troops who die in action from being ridiculed on social media or any platform.

But they can post the bodies of people they kill? And those they threw in mud and gutters?

Where do they think Nigerians are learning that culture from?

Nigeria must be the hq of clowns. Just the other day you killed esn commander and posted his body as trophy all over social media which is most likely now responsible for the unfortunate loss of lives of other soldiers and police officers since, and now you want to attack those posting pictures of dead soldiers.

If I were in the army, now is the time to run, because if you're killed nobody would even know about it.

The army cannot do anything about that because in most cases it is Boko Haram that are actually uploading these pictures. is it the Boko Haram that is having a upper hand in battle that they intend on taking legal actions on?

It is unfortunate that the Nigerian army has long lost its pride. What we majorly have now is fulani terrorist squad. The Nigeria army has lost its pride and glory courtesy of Pmb.
