The army personnel who in a viral video threatened to rape women in Delta state and give them HIV have been arrested.
The officers recorded the video in reaction to the killing of a soldier.
In the viral video, one of them was heard alongside his colleague ready to unleash mayhem in the state, especially on women.
“Warri people, una don buy job oo. Una kill soldier ba? Your mother, I will make sure I f**k your mother skin to skin.
I will f**k her skin to skin, no condom. I will make sure she carry HIV, your daughters would carry HIV, your wives would carry HIV. You get mind ba?,” he said in the video.”
Is this beast a soldier or a member of the Nig. version of MS13 or the Bloods & the Crips. Threateing to rape those he is meant to protect is unacceptable. This animal has brought nothing but shame to the Army and to his nation. He should be court-martialled! COAS over to you! pic.twitter.com/M2ZkmMlUW6
