Nigerian Army to investigate alleged maltreatment of female officer


The Nigerian Army has vowed to investigate the alleged maltreatment of a female officer by some senior officers currently trending on social media.

Major General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director, Army Public Relations in a statement on Friday said the Army as a disciplined force, will conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

“It is crucial to point out that, contrary to the claims made in the video, the soldier in question has not exhausted the laid-down procedure for seeking redress in the Nigerian Army.

“This is aside from the Human Rights and Gender Desks established in Army Headquarters and across NA formations, where complaints about human rights and gender issues are also entertained.” It said

According to the statement, the NA remains a professional force that self-regulates and conducts its activities in adherence to established rules and ethics while upholding the highest standards of discipline amongst personnel.


The statement further encouraged all personnel to always utilise the established channels for addressing grievances and concerns as members of a noble and disciplined force.

It assured the general public that the NA as an institution is committed to upholding the integrity and morals of its personnel, and as such, appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings of the investigation.

It urged the public to allow the investigative process to take its course and refrain from making hasty judgments, adding that the NA remains dedicated to serving the country with honour and integrity.
