The 9 Brigade of the Nigerian Army has on Monday arrested a Corporal, Omoh F, who was caught on video using his belt to flog a woman at the United Bank of Africa (UBA) in Oshodi Lagos.
The Spokesman for the 9 Brigade, Major Olaniyi Osoba, confirmed his arrest. “I can confirm to you that he has been detained and investigations are ongoing.”
Omoh’s arrest is coming after he flogged a woman, who took to social media to share the video on Monday.
According to the woman, an argument had ensued after she challenged the soldier who attempted to jump the queue at the ATM.
Infuriated by the woman’s effrontery, Corporal Omoh argued with the woman while other customers tried to intercede.
After a while, the officer, who had his nose mask hanging below his chin, swiftly unfastened his belt and struck the woman not minding pleas and retrains.
She 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.”
She continued, “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.”Follow us on social media
