Considering the volatile nature of religion in the country, SOJ WORLDWIDE ONLINE NEWS took upon itself to do a factcheck on the viral photo on Whatsapp groups where some military graduands were in front of a building with the inscription, “Nigerian Army School of Islamic Affairs”.



Our factcheck traced the photo to official account of Simon Ekpa, Chieftain of militant IPOB group operating from Ireland but giving orders to the ESN armed men to unleash terror on the Southeast.  In a nutshell, he is not a friend of the Nigerian Army, the viral report cannot be trusted hence our factcheck.



SOJ WORLDWIDE sent a message to Nigerian Army through their official calling on them to speakout on the volatile issue to avoid religious crisis.

The Nigerian Army has been notified of a misleading viral report suggesting that the NA only runs a School of Islamic Affairs, ignoring other faith. The viral report also made futile effort to portray the NA as exclusively encouraging religious bigotry among its personnel.


Considering the gravity of this falsehood, the NA wishes to categorically state that this propaganda in its entirety is dead on arrival as it clearly does not reflect the values of our esteemed institution.


The Nigerian Army is a secular organization that upholds the principle of religious freedom for all its personnel and ensures that personnel irrespective of ranks is free to practice their religions without any form of bias or endorsement of a specific religion.

In addition to the Nigerian Army School of Islamic Affairs located in NA Cantonment Ikeja, Lagos, the NA also has the Nigerian Army Protestant Training School in Yaba and the Nigerian Army Chaplain Catholic Training School in Ojo Cantonment.

These schools frequently engage in interfaith collaborations, promoting unity and cohesion among our diverse members.
