The brutality of the Nigeria Soldiers was again displayed on 30th January when an innocent man had his eyes popped out as a result of the beating given to him.
According to an eye witness, the incident which happened at 1st Artillery Junction, Portharcourt left everybody in shock. We gathered that the unlucky man’s offence was because he drove his tricycle popularly called Keke Napepe along the same route where his Lebanese expatriate boss and co Army escorts were passing.
The Soldier whose name could not be captured was reportedly excited as he descended on the man with his horse whip (Koboko), while kicking his face with his boot, as his Lebanese boss watched him. The resultant effect of the beating was his eyes popping out and spilling on the ground.
Aware of their brutality, they threatened to shoot the man if he reports and drove away speedily, while the crowd who watched kept mute out of fear.
