Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries has urged the Nigerian Military to stop beating up Nigerians while implementing the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) stay at home order.
Apostle Suleman made the remark in a tweet on his official Twitter page on Thursday.
“Please everyone stay at home, but soldiers, the way you are beating up people is uncalled for.
“Chase them back indoors, not these furious beatings. If the Govt had palliative measures in place to reduce hunger, it would have been okay.
“Some people are dying of hunger…my opinion.”
Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters has rubbished the torture videos being circulated on social media alleged to have been perpetrated by the personnel of the armed forces while implementing the Coronavirus stay at home order.
Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, in a statement on Thursday, said the videos being circulated were the handiwork of mischief makers to tarnish the image of the Military.
“The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to some video clips trending in the media,” the statement read.
“The clips are being used by some mischievous elements to tarnish the image of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“Members of the public are hereby advised to disregard those videos.”
The number of Coronavirus cases in Nigeria is at 174, according to NCDC.
