Sequel to the video clip of two soldiers
maltreating a physically challenged man
on the streets of Onitsha, Anambra
State, last Tuesday, in line with our zero
tolerance of infringement of human
rights by troops, those involved; Corporal
Bature Samuel and Corporal Abdulazeez
Usman of 82 Provost Company, have
been arrested, summarily tried based on
2 count charges and found guilty.

Consequently, both have been sentenced
to reduction in rank; from Corporal to

Imprisonment with Hard Labour (IHL)
respectively, which includes forfeiture of
21 days pay to the Federal Government

assault, Mr. Chijoke Uraku (alias CJ), as
widely reported by the media.
