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.
