WATCH: Military Officials Torture Members Of IPOB
Different videos emerged online of Military personnel torturing some members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra on Wednesday.
The videos are alleged to have been shot in south-east Nigeria where the military recently launched 'Operation Egwu Eke II' (Python Dance) to check vices and secession agitations.
Critics are already accusing the army of human rights abuse.
However, a spokesman for the Army, Brigadier General Sani Usman, told the Nigerian Television Authority that the military was in the south east to ensure peace and not for crisis.
He dismissed claims that the military attacked some members of IPOB and insisted that the youth had molested some persons and wanted to loot some shops, before the military intervened.
"It is not correct to say that there were some skirmishes in Aba," he insisted.
"Operation Egwu Eke was demanded for by people in the region to ensure peace in the 'ember' months."
Twitter, Facebook and other social networks had videos of some persons being forced to lay down on the floor, with a flag of the group put before them.
Another video showed some persons in mud water while some where being hit with sticks.
These videos are coming a day after members of the IPOB in large numbers moved to where the leader of group, Nnamdi Kanu, resides.
There were earlier reports that the military had laid siege to Mr Kanu's residence in Abia State.
Mixed reactions have continued to trail the videos and the decision of the government to deploy troops in the region where agitation for the Independence of the region have continued to increase since 2016.
Earlier in the day, videos emerged of some persons checking buses for Hausa speaking Nigerians.
