The Nigerian Army has promised to try the officer seen in a viral video assaulting a member of the National Youth Service Corps in accordance with the provisions of the Armed Forces Act. 

In the viral video, the commissioned female Army officer identified as Lieutenant Chika Anele was seen pouring muddy water on a youth corps member, Ezeiruaku Fidelia, who was in her uniform.

The corps member was said to be serving at the 13 Brigade headquarters in Calabar.

Describing the act as unprofessional, the Director of army public relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu in a statement on Thursday noted that the action is against established precepts of discipline in the service.

He said the Brigade Commander had immediately instituted an investigation and the officer involved has been identified and sanctioned in the interim.

Onyema however apologised to the victim for the assault she suffered.
