.. Describes act unprofessional, unacceptable

Nigerian Army,NA, said it  has taken cognizance of a video clip currently making the rounds on the social media, where a female officer was seen dehumanizing a member of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, in Calabar, Cross River State. This act is not only condemnable but unprofessional and against established precepts of discipline in the NA.
Disclosing this in a press statement issued to journalists by the Brigadier General Director Army Public Relations, Onyeoma Nwachukwu,  NA said it remained undoubtedly the pride of the nation, a symbol of national unity that has consistently being in the vanguard of respect for the fundamental human rights of the citizenry.
” It is against this premise that the NA condemns this unimaginable level of an infraction by personnel in its ranks. The NA therefore,  condemns in strong terms, this act of gross misconduct. Undoubtedly, the officer’s actions has caused the NA monumental embarrassment and is highly regrettable.
“This unfortunate act of indiscipline does not in any way represent the NA and will not be condoned in its entirety.
For the records, the ugly incident happened in 13 Brigade, Calabar. The Brigade Commander immediately instituted an investigation and the officer involved has been identified and sanctioned in the interim and would be made to undergo regimental orders (trial) in line with the extant provisions of the Armed Forces Act. The submission that the Brigade attempted covering up was therefore misleading, as the NA remains a professional force that has zero-tolerance for indiscipline amongst its personnel.
“The NA wishes to reiterate and assure the general public that such infractions would not be tolerated from its personnel,” it stated.
The NA, therefore,   reassured that the rights of the citizenry is sacrosanct and must be respected by all its personnel , as any form of infraction will be severely dealt with.
Therefore, the general public is enjoined to continue to report such infractions, as Human Rights Desks in all formations of the NA are emplaced to deal decisively with such  erring personnel.
The NA further  wishes to tender unreserved apology to the victim, her family members, friends, National Youth Service Corps and to Nigerians in general for the unwholesome treatment meted out to the Corps member.
