Narrating his ordeal, he said: “I am living today by the special mercy of  God who saved me as the  soldiers intended to kill me as they  descended on me with any available objects at their disposal. They pummeled me,  until I temporarily passed out.

“The soldiers were attacking any civilian that tried to rescue me with heavy woods.” This, he said, happened at exactly 6:30 pm in front of the CVD barracks.

He alleged that the soldiers made away with all the money he and the driver made for the day and his Techno phone.

“Last Thursday, I was at work and  there was traffic gridlock at Volks bus stop. I wanted to urinate. I told my master and he permitted me to go. I crossed over to the bush opposite the CVD barracks. As I was urinating, someone threw a  heavy stone on my back. When I looked back; I saw  a woman who was throwing more stones at me . She has a makeshift shop in the bush. I saw about five soldiers inside the woman’s shop drinking and smoking with some area boys. The soldiers said if I finish urinating I should come. I entered the makeshift shop and told the woman that I was very  sorry because, I knew they were out for a problem having seen soldiers with her. Before I knew it, the soldiers descended on me, hitting me with iron, stones, any object at their reach. The woman told them to continue beating me as I urinated close to her shop. She called more  soldiers to join in the beating . They continued until I fell down.

“I went to the Onirekere Police Station to report the robbery case. The police gave me papers to go to the hospital and instructed me to come back the following day. The next day, the police followed me to the makeshift shed. But the woman threatened to call soldiers to beat us. We had to leave. We were advised by some people around to quickly leave as the woman was so powerful, besides she was taking good care of some soldiers who are backing her .

“I am appealing to the military authorities to wade into the matter and bring those who brutalised and robbed me to justice,” he said.

  7. The name soldier is associated with discipline worldwide
    But the action of these soldiers in question and that of several Nigerian soldiers is usually far from discipline
    Here in Nigeria most soldiers and all sorts of uniformed men and women behave in a very despicable way by going about bullying,harassing and brutalising other citizens who they derogate by calling them “bloody civilians”
    These group of Nigerians in uniform ignorantly believe that they are above the law and are better than others
    The inequitable system where erring soldiers are protected from facing civil justice,but have to be referred to their unit commanders does not help matters
    These unit commanders themselves are not much different from their officers and men as most of them too will brutalise civilians at the slightest excuse
    This is quite disgraceful
