Army Lt caught on camera dehumanizing Corps member in Calabar
A military officer serving in the 13th Brigade Command of the Nigerian Army in Calabar, Lt. Chika Viola Anele was allegedly caught on camera dehumanizing a female Youth Corps member.
The victim, whose name was given as Ezeiruaku Ifenyiwa Fidelia, a female corps member was reportedly serving in the 13th Brigade.
Although it was not clear what brought about her disagreement with the corps member, but in the video, which has now gone viral, the victim was seen dressed in her full NYSC uniform, while the Army officer forced her to kneel and poured what was suspected to be dirty water on her.
Mixed reactions have trailed the video since it went viral with a lot of people reacting that the Army officer could have at least respected the NYSC uniform or waited for her when she was on mufti.
An NYSC source who pleaded anonymity confirmed the incident disclosing that the State Coordinator was on top of the matter to resolve it amicably.
Meanwhile the Nigerian Army has described the dehumanizing act of the officer as unacceptable and unprofessional.
The Nigerian Army in a statement signed by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu said it has taken cognizance of the said video clip and has already taken actions as it has instituted an investigation into the matter.
