Nigerian Army bars soldiers from uploading videos, pictures of operations on social media

The Nigerian Army has barred its soldiers from uploading videos, pictures of operations on social media. This statement was made by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 1 Division Mechanized Army, Major-General Adeniyi Oyebade, on behalf of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant-General Tukur Buratai in Kaduna.

He made this known at the graduation ceremony of men of Nigerian Battalion (NIBBAT) 46, which was held at the Nigerian Army Peace Keeping Centre (NAPKC), Jaji in Kaduna State.

According to him, “It is prohibited to upload any picture with your uniforms while in operation.”

He added: “Specifically, I want to warn you on the use of social media. While you are on operation, you may want to take photo shot of some good moment but you should be very careful while doing that. Avoid any picture or video that has to do with your colleague or operation. You are barred not to upload such information. It is prohibited to upload any picture with your uniforms while in operation because it will become a pragmatic problem for the Nigerian Army.”
