Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Nigerian Army released a rather troubling video of some fake soldiers who were dressed in military uniform, seen assaulting a young man.
Apart from condemning the brutality of the criminals, the force, through its acting public relations officer, Sagir Musa, stated that they were not military officers and that the entire show was stage managed.
