The Nigerian army has prohibited soldiers from posting pictures and videos of their operations on social media platforms.

The Lieutenant-General and General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Mechanized Army in Kaduna, Adeniyi Oyebade, on Tuesday gave this directive while representing the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, at the graduation ceremony of Men of Nigerian Battalion 46, which took place at the Nigerian Army Peace Keeping Centre, Jaji, Kaduna State.

The internet space in recent times has been flooded with both fun and not-so fun pictures and videos of operations of the Nigerian Army, most especially during the war with the Boko Haram terrorists in the North East.

Recall that, two weeks ago a clip posted by soldiers on the popular video platform, YouTube, shows them clamouring for food and water, claiming that many of their colleagues are collapsing on the battle field.

However, the authorities of the Nigerian Army has since dismissed the video, saying it was an old clip.

“It is prohibited to upload any picture with your uniforms while in operation,” Oyebade said

“Specifically, I want to warn you on the use of social media. While you are on operation, you may want to take photo shot of some good moment but you should be very careful while doing that.

“Avoid any picture or video that has to do with your colleague or operation. You are barred not to upload such information. It is prohibited to upload any picture with your uniforms while in operation because it will become a pragmatic problems for the Nigerian Army,” he added.
