A woman, identified as Ruth Orji, is battling with injuries inflicted on her body by some soldiers, including one Major Ibongha, attached to the 174 Battalion, Ikorodu, Lagos State.
The woman and her younger brother were returning from a birthday party in a hotel in Odogunyan, Ikorodu, on Sunday at about 8.30pm when the soldiers stormed the area and started beating up people.
She said one of the soldiers slapped her brother and she protested, adding that the men descended on her, seized her phone and took her to their barracks.
“I don’t really have strength to talk much now. I am being taken to another hospital in Ikeja. The incident happened on Sunday. We went for a birthday party in a hotel in Ikorodu. As we were coming out of the hotel around 8.30pm, some soldiers arrived in a vehicle and started beating up people, including my brother. I begged them.
“They bundled me inside their vehicle and took me to their barracks, where they beat me up,” she said
