Stories of the ugly manifestation of the wickedness of some Nigerian soldiers have continued to increase with a new one cropping up everyday. A lady identified as Ruth Orji has been left with serious injuries after she allegedly challenged a soldier who slapped her brother without cause in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state.
According to reports, the military officer Major S.U Obongha is said to be attached to the 174 battalion, Nigerian Army Barrack, Odoguyan Ikorordu.
Jewel Infinity, a Facebook user who shared the story wrote:
“THE MILITARY AGAIN?
“Plz ppl we must stop this act by all means..I don’t have the details because she is still in the military hospital and they are all over her acting nice just like my own case she was talking to me on the phone but quickly dropped and gave me SMS that she is not comfortable talking in their midst
“I am really feeling her pains right now plz she needs justice at all cost and that was why I took her case already to JLAA(joint legal action aids)
Soonest she will tell us exactly how it happened at JLAA
“It happened to me, to Chijioke the crippled man, who knows who’s next. I don’t want to mention Shamzy Shamzy who was killed some days ago by her air force lover I don’t wanna mention bcos it’s not a military case but I believe these ppl are here to protect us not to kill us oo and many other cases.
“Plz lets share it happened yesterday in Lagos b4 they will send their satanic agents in form of a lawyer to say they have given her 250k just to distract her in getting justice just like they tried and failed in my case.
“Her name is Ruth Orji and that’s her fb name too I don’t know her but I feel her pains bcos I have been there…Plz ignore the errors and share. Tanx!
“Miss Ebere Ohakwe.”
The lady Jewel Infinity, who shared the story was also a victim of the wickedness of some Nigerian soldiers. Sometime towards the end of January 2017, she shared the story of how a young soldier, Sulaiman Olamilekan, molested and manhandled her for allegedly ‘talking about him’.
According to a Facebook post by Jewel, the victim, the soldier was said to have ruthlessly beaten her up with an iron rod at a checking point while she was on her way to Onitsha from Port Harcourt.
Unfortunately, as is always the case in Nigeria, the victim alleged that the matter was swept under the carpet while the military made Nigerians believe that the culprit was jailed for 28 days without pay.
