The Nigerian Army has denied the reports that soldiers caused a rampage in Lagos earlier today despite photo evidences to the effect and several witnesses. Speaking with Premium Times, the Nigerian Army spokesperson, Olajide Olaleye, blamed area boys for the attack.
“It’s not true that the soldiers destroyed buses or set any bus on fire. What happened was that a BRT bus knocked down a soldier and killed him. As usual in Lagos, area boys gathered and a few soldiers stopped at the scene as well. The GOC has dispatched military policemen to the scene to help restore law and order,” Mr. Olaleye said.
Yeah, right! What a perfect explanation. To see the photos of the destruction wroth by the soldiers, go here.
