A soldier who went on the social media to advise his colleagues not to attack #EndSARS protesters has been arrested by the Nigerian Army.
The soldier, Lance Corporal Harrison Friday, who was wearing a mask in the video uploaded last week, had asked his colleagues to understand that the protesters were fighting for a better Nigeria and they must be supported by all Nigerians including the military.
He had said, “The fight the civilians are fighting is our fight, do not let them (the Nigerian government) use us.”
However, the army on Wednesday announced on Twitter that the corporal had been arrested for cybercrime.
“The hooded soldier hiding behind the mask to commit cybercrimes has been apprehended in the ongoing cyber operations in support of crocodile smile. Rest assured cybercriminals have no hiding place,” the army said in the tweet.
