Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff has maintained that the Nigerian Army was professional in its conduct.
However, CNN had released an investigative report showing how soldiers had shot at protesters on the fateful day.
Reacting to the report, Buratai said the Nigerian Army will never operate outside the rules of engagement.
He spoke while receiving members of the House of Representatives committee on Army at the Army headquarters on Wednesday.
According to Buratai: “Let me assure you and all Nigerians that the Nigerian Army is a professional Army. We follow our rules of engagement. Nigerians should feel safe.
“We abide by rules of engagement and the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.”
