The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya has ordered the immediate release of a detained female soldier, Private Sofiyat Akinlabi.

Akinlabi was detained after video clips where she was seen accepting a marriage proposal from a male corps member at the NYSC orientation camp in Kwara, went viral on social media.

However, NAN reported that a reliable source at Army Headquarters, on Saturday, said that the COAS freed her in the spirit of Christmas.
