Soldier arrested for flogging a woman with belt ATM queue

An Army Corporal Omoh f has been arrested by the 9 Brigade of the Nigerian Army, after being caught on video flogging a woman with his belt at an Oshodi branch of the United Bank of Africa (UBA) in Lagos.

The spokesman for 81 Division, Major Olaniyi Osoba, confirmed this development in a statement on Monday.

“I can confirm to you that he has been detained and investigations are ongoing,” Osoba said.

Earlier, a lady tweeted on Monday how she was harassed by the corporal.

Tweeting with her handle, @vels20, she alleged that the soldier had tried to jump an ATM queue but she challenged him, saying that it was not right.

She further stated that this angered Corporal Omoh who removed his belt from his waist and flogged her.

She tweeted, “I was just assaulted by an army official this morning, being October 26, 2020, at the ATM stand of UBA at their Oshodi branch…I’m also scared of writing this because he threatened me. 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. 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.”

In the video, some persons at the scene were begging the army officer to calm down and stop hitting the lady.
