Soldiers beat, rob Lagos conductor

07 September 2016, 09:11

Abuja - A bus conductor has found himself battered and bruised following an assault perpetrated on him by soldiers from the Central Vehicle Depot (CVD) in Lagos.

According to the Sun News Online, Everton Ugochukwu Chionwe escaped his death when he was allegedly been and robbed of his money and phone by the soldiers, who he alleges battered him until he passed out.

“The soldiers were attacking any civilian that tried to rescue me with heavy woods,” Chionwe revealed.

The victim claims that he reported the matter to the Onirekere Police Station, where he was told to go to the hospital and return the next day.

Upon his return, however, Chionwe was threatened by a woman who claimed that she would call the soldiers to come back and beat him again if he did not leave the premises.

“I am appealing to the military authorities to wade into the matter and bring those who brutalised and robbed me to justice,” Chionwe said.
