Nigerian Army arrests soldiers who threatened to rape women in Warri, infect them with HIV (VIDEO)

The Nigerian Army says it has arrested the two soldiers who threatened to rape and infect women in Warri, Delta state, with HIV over the alleged killing of their colleague by residents.

A soldier had allegedly shot dead a man identified as Joseph Pessu for allegedly violating the "stay at home" order in Delta state on Thursday over the coronavirus outbreak.

The killing had resulted in a violent clash between some residents and soldiers in Warri.

Some youth protesting the killing had reportedly beaten another soldier to death.

Eyewitnesses attributed the clash to the highhandedness of the soldiers patrolling the city.

After the Thursday clash, reports had said some soldiers may be planning a reprisal in Warri.

In the 26-second video, two soldiers, whose faces are partially shielded, are seen making remarks that are filled with profanities, including a threat to rape “mothers” and “daughters” in the city.

“Warri people, una don buy job! Una kill soldier, baa?” one of the soldiers wearing a military camouflage said in Pidgin English.

“Your mother…. I’ll make sure she carry HIV! Your daughters will carry HIV, your wives will carry HIV!”

The Nigerian Army on Friday, said the two soldiers has been arrested and being investigated.

The Army wrote on Twitter:

"Soldiers in a viral video using uncouth  and uncivilized language purportedly threatening to molest  women in Warri Delta State were arrested at 9 Brigade Ikeja Military Cantonment Lagos State today 3 April 2020 and further investigation is ongoing.

"The general public should be assured that the investigations will be swift and fair in accordance with applicable military laws. The outcome of the investigations will determine the most appropriate disciplinary measures that can be taken in the circumstances

"The Nigerian Army wishes to reiterate that it would not tolerate any form of irresponsibility and indiscipline on the part of any of its personnel."
