A video which was shared on social media shows a military officer beating up a man who dressed up as a soldier.
The victim rocked a full camouflage outfit, as though he were an army officer and this appears to have provoked the real soldier who then pounced on him in public.
The soldier used different weapons in beating him as a crowd watched without being able to intervene.
The incident has been condemned by Nigerians on social media to who felt it was too extreme.
Watch the video:
