The Nigerian Army has denied allegations that it is recruiting Islamic fundamentalists and jihadists. The rebuttal came in response to a viral video that claimed the Army was recruiting jihadists.

According to the Army, the video falsely depicted an officer encouraging Muslim young men to join the military to protect and propagate Islam.

The Army further said the footage also falsely portrayed an officer calling on Muslim young men to join the military to protect and propagate Islam.

A statement today by the Director, Army Public Relations, Major General Onyema Nwachukwu, says the viral video was aimed at causing a religious crisis in the country.
