A female commissioned army officer, Lieutenant Chika Viola Anele who was caught on camera punishing a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia in Cross River State has been arrested by the Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police (NACMP)
A viral video showed the moment lieutenant Anele bathed Ms Fidelia with unknown substance after an alleged argument between the duo.
The video was shared by a Nigerian journalist and human rights activist, Agba Jalingo.
“#JusticeForIfenyinwa. This is what a commissioned female Army officer, Lt. Chika Viola Anele, did to a youth corps member, Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia, serving at the 13 Brigade headquarters in Calabar after having an argument,” Jalingo had posted on his Facebook page.
He added that, “We understand that the leadership in 13 Brigade are working to kill the matter. Let us make the officer very popular for all the wrong reasons.
“Share the video until it gets to the Chief of Army Staff and that Chika girl is brought to book.”
Meanwhile, giving an update on Thursday afternoon, the activist said Lieutenant Anele has been arrested by the military police and was under interrogation.
“The Army Officer, Lt. Chika Viola Anele, who was caught on video dehumanising and humiliating a Youth Corper, Ezeiruaku Ifenyinwa Fidelia in Calabar earlier, has just been arrested by the MP, after our report and under interrogation. #JusticeForIfenyinwa,” he posted.
