Brutalized woman

A  Board of Inquiry has been constituted by the Commander 9 Brigade, Brigadier General  Elias Attu to investigate the circumstances that led to  the brutal attack on a woman by soldiers in Ikorodu, Lagos,Nigeria.

A statement by Ag Deputy Director Army Public Relations, Lieutenant Colonel OM Daudu  said  the panel  will  determine the level of the soldiers’ involvement, submit its findings and recommend appropriate disciplinary measures which will be communicated.

“The female has been taken to hospital where she is responding to treatment while 6 soldiers are being detained in regards to the incident,” Daudu  disclosed.

The statement said: “The attention of Headquarters 81 Division Nigerian Army has been drawn to the social media and Newspapers online reports on “Alleged brutalization of a female by soldiers”.

“The incident occurred in Odoguyan, Ikorodu area of Lagos state involving soldiers of 174 Battalion on Sunday 12  March 2017

“The alleged incident is highly regrettable, even as the Division under the Nigerian Army has zero tolerance for inhuman treatment. Discipline remains the bedrock of the Nigerian Military Profession. It is quite disheartening when such incidences occur, even though isolated, will not be treated with any laxity.

“We thank the media for timely information in bringing such incidences to fore. The Division remains committed to its tasks as part of the constitutional mandate of the Nigerian Army. It continues to enjoin all to be law abiding and count on their support and cooperation.”
