The Nigerian Army has arrested one Corporal, Omoh F, of the 9 Brigade, who was caught on video flogging a woman at an ATM branch in Oshodi, Lagos.
Spokesman for the 9 Brigade, Major Olaniyi Osoba, confirmed the arrest to The PUNCH on Monday.
“I can confirm to you that he has been detained and investigations are ongoing,” Osoba said.
The affected lady, Ada-Oma had taken to Twitter, earlier today to reveal how she was flogged with a belt by a soldier, who was later identified as Corporal Omoh.
Tweeting via her handle, @vels20, the lady alleged that the soldier had tried to jump an ATM queue but she challenged him.
She further stated that this angered Corporal Omoh who removed his belt from his waist and flogged her as could be seen in a video she shared
Ada Oma 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.
“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.
“This happened at UBA branch in Oshodi and the security men were there. I literally cried my way to the office. 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.”
