The video was posted on twitter by a man identified as @iammrzone. The officer could be seen in the video raining slaps on the Keke Rider while another colleague watches without holding him back.

The unidentified soldier in mufti was later seen seizing the key to the tricycle

This is so wrong. This stupid Army man decided to beat the Keke driver because he spoke to him and the keke driver ignored him

Nigerians on social media, have however condemned the assault on the rider.
