Nigerian Army Warns Against Indiscriminate Sharing of Soldiers Killed- in- Action on Social media

Published

on

The Nigerian Army has condemned the indiscriminate sharing on social media of graphic pictures of its personnel who paid the supreme price in the cause of defending and protecting the country from its adversaries.

Brigadier General Muhammad Yerima Army Public Relations Directorate said the act is not only unpatriotic but according to him is very insensitive and utterly reprehensible.

” Officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army deployed to various theatres of internal security operations are on legitimate duties and are in the harm’s way to defend and protect the country from those who are intent on destroying it.

” In the course of carrying out this constitutional mandate, troops put their lives on the line to ensure that innocent citizens and institutions of the state are protected from violent criminals. In some cases, these gallant officers and soldiers are meted with the worst form of savagery by the heartless adversaries whose intent is to instill fear on of the citizenry.” He said

 

He pointed out that Nigerian Army and its personnel understand the nature of the noble calling and are ever ready to confront any danger of adversity on the way.

He further said what is most unfathomable is the glee with which some people share the gory pictures of officers and soldiers who are either killed-in-action or wounded-in-action in the media.

Yerima maintained such unpatriotic acts are often done without any modicum of consideration for the memories of the departed personnel or their family members.

“In some cases, their loved ones do find out about their unfortunate death in such callous manner before they are even contacted by the military authorities. One can only imagine the trauma and pain such families go through waking up to see the gory pictures of their loved ones splashed on the social media.”

” The Nigerian Army consider this despicable and unpatriotic act totally unacceptable and will henceforth take legal actions to protect troops who die in action from being ridiculed on social media or any platform”. He decried.
