The Nigerian army on Monday warned its officers against disseminating sensitive operational information on the social media.

The commandant, Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Maj.-Gen. Chukwuemeka Onwuamaegbu, gave the warning at the opening of the second quarter study meeting of officers of the Directorate of Army Public Relations (DAPR) in Kaduna.

Onwuamaegbu said although the social media has a global appeal, the officers must be cautious in using it to avert security breach.

“In addition to all the benefits we can get from the new media, we also have drawbacks. I have personally seen a few posting on Facebook, twitter by service personnel that should not be there.

“So I hope that during this period they will be able to know the disadvantages of the new media to be able to caution service personnel about some of this posting that should not be there in the cyber”.
