Soldier's Assault On Lagos Motorist: We Are Investigating Viral Video – NIGERIAN ARMY


Investigation has commenced into the assault of a motorist at Obalende by a man dressed in military camouflage.

This revelation was made known by the General Officer Commanding, GOC, 81 Division of the Nigerian Army,  Maj.-Gen Musa Yusuf while reacting to the video showing how the man was allegedly assaulted.

Acccording to Yusuf, “Intelligence and Military Police commanders are handling that. We are trying to trace the soldier and where he is serving.”

It would be recalled that there had been public criticism over a viral video which showed the alleged soldier identified as Duru I who drove an ash Acura Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) with number plate Oyo AE966YYY physically assaulting an older man.

In the poster of the video, the incident occurred around 5:16pm on Monday opposite Kam Salem Police Station in Obalende.

Specifically, the video clip revealed that the man who drove against traffic and suddenly stopped, came out of his vehicle and slapped the driver of a saloon car on the face with an order that he comes out of his car.

According to the poster, “We were on the right side of the road coming from Obalende but had to stop as there was an oncoming vehicle in our way. 

“This vehicle should have been on the left side, we honked several times but the vehicle refused to move.

“We then heard other disgruntled drivers murmur “na soldier oh” and so we reversed in an attempt to wriggle our way out peacefully but to our surprise the soldier reversed and intentionally drove forward to hit our car.

“These videos show the altercations right from when we were wrongly hit. His name as seen on his uniform is Duru I.”
