The Nigerian navy has reacted to a trending video concerning a student who was alleged to have been brutalised by an instructor in the Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Abeokuta.


According to NAN, Suleman Dahun, the force’s director of information, spoke of the viral video in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Dahun said the video was sent to the management of the school by a concerned parent who declined to specify when the incident took place and the person involved.

He also said that preliminary investigation showed that the incident took place two sessions ago and was handled administratively.


“For the avoidance of doubt, further investigation is ongoing on the matter and parents are advised to avoid recycling these sorts of materials to create tension and ill feelings,” Dahun said.

“The service is committed to providing top-class education in its schools under a conducive atmosphere.

“The NN is also not unmindful of the need to uphold standards and discipline in its schools without recourse to the unorthodox method of achieving these goals.”
