The Nigerian navy high command has said that trending video of alleged brutalization of student took place long ago and has been addressed administratively.

Navy spokesman, Commodore Suleman Dahun, in statement also noted that the naval institute would not lower its disciplinary standards.

According to Dahun, “The attention of the Nigerian Navy has been drawn to a video trending online concerning a student who was allegedly brutalized by an instructor in Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Abeokuta.

“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.

“However, preliminary investigation revealed that the incident took place 2 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 in order not to create tension and ill feelings. The Nigerian Navy is committed to providing top class education in her schools under a conducive atmosphere.

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