Nigerian Army arrests soldier for alleged assault on Oyo traffic wardens (video)

The Nigerian Army has arrested a Lance Corporal allegedly involved in an assault on two traffic wardens in Oyo State.

In a video which went viral on social media, the Lance Corporal and one of his colleagues could be seen assaulting the traffic wardens at Adeoye Road by Ring Road, Ibadan in Oyo state on Friday, January 7.

In a statement released by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, the Nigerian Army says it is working with the state police command to fish out and arrest others who participated in the assault. The Army said the conduct of the individuals seen in a video was against the ethos of the Nigerian Army.

The statement was titled, “One soldier arrested as investigation is ongoing to identify and arrest all culprits in the unfortunate assault on traffic wardens in Ibadan.” reads

“Following the viral video of an assault on two traffic wardens by men on military uniform suspected to be soldiers, the headquarters Nigerian Army ordered immediate investigation to identify and arrest the culprits.

Preliminary investigation has shown that the unfortunate incident took place on Friday, January 7, 2022 at Adeoye Road by Ring Road, Ibadan.

The investigation is also already yielding results as one of assailants, a Lance Corporal of the Nigerian Army, has been taken into custody. Efforts are being made in collaboration with the Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Police Force to identify, locate and arrest the remaining culprits.

Even as investigation is still ongoing, the Nigerian Army wishes to dissociate itself from the very reprehensible conduct of the individuals seen in that video. The vicious attack on fellow security personnel or any unarmed citizens in the manner seen in the video is not consistent with the ethos and professionalism of the Nigerian Army and therefore stands condemned in very strong terms. “
