Woman Battered By Soldiers In Lagos Cries Out For Justice

Sympathisers have taken to social media to seek justice on behalf of a lady after she was allegedly beaten mercilessly by soldiers for protesting after her brother was slapped by a soldier.

The photo of the woman, showing her sore back has been shared several times on Facebook with the hope that it will be seen by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai.

It was alleged that the act was carried out by soldiers attached to 174 Battalion, Ikorodu, Lagos.

“I think Nigerian Army should be called to order fast,” Sheriff Alabi Mosalu who posted the photo on Facebook wrote. 
“This lady was brutalised by (soldiers from) 174 Battallion Ikorodu, all because she challenged a soldier that slapped her brother. 
“This is becoming too much and barbaric likewise. I don’t want to believe our soldiers are animals…kilode.”
