“Is This Fake News Too” – Banky W Reacts To Viral Video Of Soldiers Brutalizing Civilians
Nollywood actor cum politician, Olubankole Wellington popularly known as Banky W has reacted to the viral video of soldiers brutalizing civilians.
In reaction the actor enquired from the Nigerian Army via Twitter, if the viral video was doctored, like they claimed, to debunk the gunfire incident at the Lekki Tollgate.
“Dear @HQNigerianArmy … is this fake news too? Soldiers assaulting young women and shaving the hair of young men… is this “photoshop” too? Cc @seyiamakinde @MBuhari”.

Recall that, a soldier was captured on camera using a belt to beat a woman for ‘indecent’ dressing in Beere community of Ibadan, Oyo state.
There was also a video evidence of a soldier, alleged to be the same man, cutting the hair of some of passers-by after allegedly harassing and extorting them.
An eyewitness stated that residents of the area now live in fear following the “extreme actions” of the “Operation Beast” soldiers in the state where there is no curfew.
