A Nigerian Soldier identified as Corporal, Omoh F, of the 9 Brigade, has been arrested by the Army after he was caught on video flogging a woman at an ATM branch in Oshodi, Lagos.
The lady who was flogged, Ada-Oma had taken to her social media page to reveal how she was beaten with a belt by a soldier, who was later identified as Corporal Omoh.
Ada-Oma alleged that the soldier had tried to jump an ATM queue but she challenged him.
Ada Oma tweeted, “I was just assaulted by an army official this morning 26/10/2020 at the ATM stand of UBA at their Oshodi branch. I am still shaking and crying as I write this because I have never felt this way in my entire life. I’m also scared writing this because he threatened me.
“So, my life is your hands Nigerians. I was in the ATM queue and this army official asked me to move so he could pass. I asked him if he was in the queue that there is a queue, he asked me to move. I moved and continued asking him if he was in the queue.
“He flared up as you will see in the video below, and before I knew what happened he brought out his belt and hit me.
“This happened at UBA branch in Oshodi and the security men were there. I literally cried my way to the office. I never insulted him. He threatened to make me bleed in my own country because I asked if he was in the queue. I want justice.”
Spokesman for the 9 Brigade, Major Olaniyi Osoba, confirmed the arrest to The PUNCH.
“I can confirm to you that he has been detained and investigations are ongoing,” Osoba said.
