Just few days back, the case of how a lawyer’s sustained injury in his spinal cord went viral on the internet after being mercilessly beaten by a 5 soldiers in Delta state.
In a new development, a young man took to his Twitter handle to report how another Nigerian soldier in Ikorodu, Lagos state, has beaten another civilian to death and the corpse is laying hopelessly on the ground in the state.
The man, who shared the information on Twitter was identified as Kenny Abel Adesanya and he posted the picture with the caption: “@nairaland @Omojuwa @Ayourb @TVCconnect @sunrisedailynow 174 battalion military officer beat this man to death in my area in ogijo.”
See post below:
Contrary to previous report of not knowing what happened to the man, Punch reports that the deceased’s landlady invited the soldiers after a misunderstanding ensued between them, over the two-month rent arrears the victim owed.
However, on arriving at the scene of the incident at 10 Prince Jamiu Oyebade street, Ogijo, the soldiers manhandled and brutalized the deceased which landed him at Pillars Hospital, Ogijo.
An eye witness revealed that: “The beating happened last week. It was the landlady of the victim that invited the military from 174 Battalion just because of little misunderstanding. The victim has been in the hospital since that last week before he finally gave up yesterday night. His family brought his body, dumped it at the front of the house for the landlady.” However, the landlady has been arrested by the police.
The rate at which the Nigerian soldiers are bullying or maltreating civilians in the state, is becoming alarming and if the government does not do anything about it, things will get out of hand and in little or no time, almost all our loved ones would have been injured or dead.
