Nigerians on social media have reacted negatively to a viral video footage of a Nigerian soldier assaulting and stripping and unidentified lady in Ogun state over “indecent dressing”.
According to the Twitter User that shared the video the soldier also attempted to remove the lady’s bra but stopped short after passers-by pleaded on her behalf.
“This soldier got out from the bus he was in to drag this girl on the road and start beating her. He slapped her, dragged her hair, all because of how she was dressed,” the Twitter user who shared the video disclosed.
“This was in Ogun state and I just wished there was a way to get this stupid soldier. The worst part of this thing is there was a woman that thought this was right and she said ‘this will be a lesson to her and others.”
The Nigerian Army is yet to issue a statement on the development. Several Twitter users expressed disgust at the incident.
