The Nigerian Army says one soldier was arrested in connection with the assault on two traffic wardens in Ibadan, Oyo State, while immediate investigation to identify and arrest the rest of the culprits has started.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

Nwachukwu said that preliminary investigation had shown that the unfortunate incident took place on January 7 at Adeoyo Road by Ring Road, Ibadan.

He said the investigation is also already yielding results as one of assailants, a Lance Corporal in the Nigerian Army, has been taken into custody.

According to him, efforts are being made in collaboration with the Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Police Force to identify, locate and arrest the remaining culprits.

He said: “Even as investigation is still ongoing, the Nigerian Army wishes to dissociate itself from the very reprehensible conduct of the individuals seen in the video that has gone viral.

“The vicious attack on fellow security personnel or on any unarmed citizen in the manner seen in the video is not consistent with the ethos and professionalism of the Nigerian Army and therefore stands condemned in very strong terms.

“At the end of investigation, anyone found culpable in the sordid incident will be made to face the full wrath of the disciplinary provisions of the Nigerian army.”
