Lecturer Tortured By Soldiers For Answering A Phone Call At Check Point

As shared by Victor on Facebook...
Maybe you are wondering if he is a Boko Haram terrorist undergoing punishment. No my brother he is not. This is an innocent Father and husband who did nothing wrong but to answer just a phone call at Army checkpoint. 
The lecturer as I later found out simply ask the soldiers who ask him to submit his handset and go just because he was seen answering call inside the vehicle to show him where it's warned that no one should answer call here. 
He was tortured, strip and our vehicle was ordered to go leaving the victim behind...
 My take; Am not a security expert, maybe that is why i don’t know why there are army checkpoints at almost every kilometer in the south east area of this country? What is happening? Why are people of south east being subjected to military brutality of all sort. What is wrong In answering calls inside a moving vehicle.
Have u been to Abia state recently to see how soldiers has suddenly turn to relationships Messiahs? Any little misunderstanding between two lovers, soldiers will storm in and beat the hell out of the guy. Of course we know how bags of rice of Igbos returning for Xmas were seized last year December and justice were not in sight.
Me and other concerned compatriots had in so many media platforms decried the unnecessary extortion of motorist from these same soldiers on checkpoints in south east. 
If there is anywhere that multiple checkpoint is needed in Nigeria it should be in the North where there is serious security challenges.

  1. Government should look into this wicked act of soldiers beating people blue and black for answering calls on check points or is it now part of road safety or Nigeria law.

  3. Soldiers are every where my friend, concentrate on what you report which I believe relevant authorities may come to the Innocent Man aids.
    Pls forget the partisan, come to North and see more of this happening everyday. This problem of punishing innocent citizens at checkpoints by so call Nigerian soldiers are becoming worrisome. over to you Chief of Army Staff pls do something before is too late.

    THIS VERY BAD AND INHUMAN, BARBARIC AND SATANIC AND IS NOT ACCEPTED.

    THIS EVIL SOLIDER OR WHAT HE CALLED HIMSELF SHOULD BE PUNISH ACCORDINGLY.

    IS UNFORTUNATE...NIGERIA IS A LAWLESS COUNTRY WHERE ANY THING IS POSSIBLE.

  7. The problem with Nigeria is that there is no activity that will positively engage these soldiers hence they are frustrated and misbehave at the slightest resistance to their imaginary superiority. go everywhere that soldiers mount checkpoint, all they do is extort money from commercial vehicles and all you need do is keep your sanity by not saying anything otherwise you'll be used as a guinea pig but then can we truly say that their superior officers are not aware of this extortion? i think they make returns as the norm in Nigeria.

  11. Personally I don't see how answering call at a check point is a security threat. This inhumane treatment MUST stop! What on earth did the lecturer do wrong to be treated like a criminal. The Chief of Army Staff needs to address this act of wickedness, it's becoming too much!
