The Headquarters 4 Brigade of the Nigerian Army has reacted to the arrest of its personnel by the Edo State Police Command for cultism
Captain Mohammed Maidawa, Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, in a statement on Saturday, said the Army does not allow any of its personnel to belong to any confraternity and that whoever crosses the red line will face the full rigours of military discipline.
He said: “The alleged case of Private Igbavbou Lucky who was arrested is an isolated case
“Additionally, it is germane to state that preliminary investigation revealed that the said suspect is not a personnel of 4 Brigade Nigerian Army as erroneously stated in the said publication but a deserter from 101 SF Bn in the North East of the country since January 2019.
“Thus, his conduct is a complete negation of the minimum behavioural conduct expected from a personnel of the Nigerian Army.
“The general public should be rest assured that the case will be thoroughly investigated and the military justice system will take it course.”
