The Nigerian army has reacted to the viral video showing some Nigerian soldiers complaining and fleeing from a fight against Boko Haram in Borno state.
Read the press statement below:
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.
You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
