Nwachukwu in the statement said, after realising the gravity of his actions and the potential consequences, the soldier secretly released the footage to the internet in an attempt to incite public outrage and cover up his cowardice.

According to him the soldier’s action betrays the esprit de corps and comradery that are synonymous with a military unit and fighting formation, especially during operations.

For this reason, the soldier’s actions are out of character and go against the military’s principles and core beliefs, he said.

He noted that the video footage is a complete distortion of what actually happened between the soldier and his colleagues.

The soldier in viral video has since returned to his unit, and further inquiries into the circumstances surrounding his unprofessional behavior are presently underway.
