The soldiers who were seen in viral videos assaulting some residents of Beere in Ibadan, Oyo state on Sunday, November 1, have been arrested.

A soldier was filmed flogging a woman while another cut the hair of some young men within the area over what they term 'indecent' dressing. They allegedly collected money from them after harassing and extorting them.
