According to reports, the Nigerian soldier who featured in a viral video where he was impressively doing the ‘leg work’ dance, has allegedly been arrested.
The NAF soldier who was masked-up, was recorded while dancing to singer Wurld’s ‘Mad’ — the video eventually went viral with people hailing his impressive dance moves.
A Twitter user, @GhenhisKhan recently alleges that the officer has now been arrested. Singer, Wurld also reacted, requesting for his release with a hashtag #FreeNAFOfficer.
“The song “MAD” by @thisisWurlD feat SARS, got futher free publicity because of the military guy (NAF), who was dancing to it, although the song is very “Sweet” and of international standard. We have been told the the military guy has been arrested.” the Twitter user wrote.
He continued while tagging the Nigerian Army;
“All I see is a combatant fancing away his stress at the front while keeping Nigeria safe from Boko Haram and other forms of insecurity. It is plain madness for anyone to arrest him for dancing to a tune that said “dealing with my stress and your stress and you know”
@thisisWurlD @HQNigerianArmy @DefenceInfoNG if it is indeed true that you arrested this officer for this then it is important that you release him immediately.
His mere dancing to this tune has earned @thisisWurlD 1.3m views on @YouTube“
Fast rising singer Wurld also got a DM asking him to speak up for the officer. See Wurld’s reaction below….
“hope it’s not true that this awesome guy got arrested for posting this video of himself on duty. This elevated my mood and I hope we can help get him out if the information is true . Bembelembe! Spread the word 🙏🏾 #MAD #FreeNAFOfficer #Afrosoul“
