The Nigerian Army has announced the arrest of Lance Corporal Harrison Friday who has gone on social media to advise his colleagues not to attack EndSARS protesters.
In the video uploaded last week, the soldier, who was wearing a mask, had asked his colleagues to understand that the protesters are fighting for a better Nigeria and they must be supported by all Nigerians including the military.
However, the army announced on Twitter that the corporal has been arrested for cybercrime.
It tweeted that the hooded soldier hiding behind the mask to commit cybercrimes has been apprehended in the ongoing cyber operations in support of crocodile smile.
Soldiers attached to the 81 Division have been accused of killing protesters at the Lekki tollgate on Tuesday night, an allegation the army has denied.
The attack on protesters has sparked reprisals across the state with irate youths burning down government facilities and even the family home of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
