Picture Of The Day: Alleged Nigerian Military Torture Camp

They are men of the Nigerian Army. Fully trained, armed and equipped to protect and defend the territorial integrity of Nigeria against external aggression. But due to the peculiar security challenges facing the nation, they have been called upon on countless occasions to quell internal uprisings that seem to overwhelm the Nigeria Police whose constitutional responsibility it is to maintain law and order.

However, when these boys in khaki who most times have a false impression of themselves that they’re above the law and therefore untouchable, go to the extent of allegedly torturing civilians in illegal torture camps where they base, it calls to question their professionalism. And no matter what the excuse is, it is not the Nigerian Army’s place to torture civilians or handle civil cases as that is the purview of the Nigeria Police.

This is a picture of civilians allegedly being tortured in a particular part of the country (region withheld) for an unknown offence.

Is this punishment justifiable?

  • Tunde Ajagbe u are more confused than the poster, is it by law for army to catch and punish armed robbers or boko haram members? or to forward them to the appropriate authority for prosecution? you seems to like the soldiers. Are u one? u better behave well. Bcos soldiers have many atimes in nigeria misbehave with innocent citizens.

  • Army ride on, punish d mother fucker & extract vital info frm dem. Pls dont hand dem ova 2 police, cos dey wil collect bribe and release them.

  • First question i lik2ask dis publisher how do u get this photograph? Secondly now this pics is out what has happen2this army men&their illegal torture camp? They should dealt wit as well wicked fellows.

  • Nigerians will never cease to amaze me, always quick to run their mouths at the slightest opportunity without first considering what the cause of something might be or taking time to find out details about something. The question I want to ask all these fools that have made comments are; what if these people being interrogated are linked with boko haram? What if they are members of armed robbery syndicates who have rendered lots of innocent lives wasted? Am sure none of you who have commented have known or have been affected by the activities of these 2 groups of people who are not fit to be humans that I mentioned above, otherwise you all wouldn’t be runnong your dirty mouths like this.

  • Why withholding the region, because that should have help to ascertain the offence they are been accused off, but I believe that most be in south east or south south .
