In the video that circulated on social media, men believed to be men of the Nigerian soldier were seen torturing and killing a victim suspected to be an Islamist militant before burying him in a shallow grave.

A statement by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, condemned the act strongly by some soldiers yet to be identified.

The attention of the Nigerian Army (NA) has been drawn to a video reportedly showing some NA personnel engaged in unprofessional torture and above all extrajudicial killing of a suspected Boko Haram terrorist likely in the North East Theatre of Operation.

“The NA wishes to clearly and strongly condemn the action of those involved (whoever they may be) in the misconduct, and that the dastardly act is completely unacceptable, unethical and is against the cherished core values of the NA especially that of respect for others and their fundamental rights.”
