Army moves to deal with “4×4′ soldiers

The Nigerian Army said it has launched investigations into photos trending online,  showing soldiers displaying open support for the All Progressive Congress (APC) party.
The Army said it would deal decisively with the soldiers after its investigation, explaining that the force does not condone any form of indiscipline.
A statement from the Army Spokesman Colonel Sagir Musa said the force dissociates itself from the soldiers showing the signs of the All Progressives Congress continuity campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari
The statement reads thus: “The attention of the Nigerian Army (NA) has been drawn to a picture of four armed men dressed in what looks like military camouflage in a 4 x 4 finger sign supposedly connoting a campaign symbol of a political party which is against the rules and regulations of the NA.
“The NA wishes to dissociate itself from the picture even as it has commenced immediate investigation with the view to ascertain the source and authenticity of the pictures and the “soldiers’ involved. If the outcome of the investigation comfirm this to be true, appropriate sanctions would be provided. NA of today under the command of Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai do not condone or encourage indiscipline and any form of professional misconduct.
“On many occasions, the Chief of Army Staff has made it strongly clear that Army personnel will remain neutral, totally apolitical and will not compromise its constitutional roles under any guise.”
