In a swift reaction to the video, the Army claimed that it was a video recorded back in 2014, during former President, Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
Below is the Army’s Press statement:
The attention of the Nigerian Army, has been drawn to an old video clip circulating on the social media, in which a supposedly Soldier clad with an AK-47 rifle, alleging lack of arms and ammunition, among other Soldiers, in a remote location, walking.
This is not true, as the video was recorded in 2014, and therefore, cannot be a true reflection of the present reality. The public are please requested to discountenance the video clip.
