A picture of an unidentified Nigerian soldier getting treatment while an Intravenous therapy was being passed to him from a tree has gone viral online.
Intravenous therapy is a medical technique that delivers fluids, medications and nutrition directly into a person's vein.
The intravenous route of administration is commonly used for rehydration or to provide nutrition for those who cannot consume food or water by mouth.
In the picture, the soldier is seen lying on a bed that is supported by the branches of a tree while the IV fluid being given to him is hung from the tree.
However, the date and place the incident took place could not be ascertained.
In spite of billions of naira budgeted yearly for security and the Nigerian army, soldiers at the end of the chain have not been feeling the effect.
