The Nigerian Army on Sunday said a female soldier, Akinlabi Sofiyat, who accepted a marriage proposal from a male corps member at the National Youth Service Corps Orientation Camp in Yikpata, Kwara State, will be penalised for violating military rules and regulations.
Our Convener, Mr Adeyanju Deji, speaking on the issue, has condemned the prolonged detention and alleged violation of her human rights by army authorities by denying Sofiyat access to members of her family and refused to provide her with food, sanitary materials and medical care.
“Such gross violation of human right, abuse of power and excessive use of force is absolutely uncalled for and condemnable”.
He further called for the immediate release of the detained female soldier before it sparks national global outrage.
