Army Investigates Allegations of Maltreatment by Female Soldier

A serious issue involving the Nigerian Army about some allegations made by a female soldier who said she was mistreated by her superiors. Let’s find out more!

The Accusation

In a video that went viral, a female soldier, who wasn’t wearing her uniform, accused some senior officers of treating her badly. This caught the attention of the Nigerian Army, and they decided to investigate.

The Army’s Response

The Director of Army Public Relations, Maj. Gen. Nwachukwu Onyema, released a statement on Friday. He said that the army would investigate the allegations to find out if they were true or not. Onyema also criticized the female soldier for not following the proper procedure to address her concerns.

The Investigation Process

The Nigerian Army takes these allegations seriously because they want to maintain their professionalism and discipline. They have specific channels, like the Human Rights and Gender Desks, where soldiers can report complaints about mistreatment. The army encourages all personnel to use these channels to address their grievances.

Actions to be Taken

Once the investigation is complete, appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings. The army wants to uphold the integrity and morals of its personnel, so they will hold anyone accountable if they are found guilty of mistreating a female soldier.

Similar Incidents

This is not the first time there have been reports of mistreatment by soldiers in the Nigerian army. Inibehe Effiong, a public interest and human rights lawyer, recently filed a petition about a police officer who was assaulted by army personnel. Effiong wants those responsible to be identified and held accountable for their actions.

Training Crucial for Victory

In another incident, the Nigerian Army allegedly invaded the Adamawa State Police Command headquarters and killed a police inspector. This caused President Bola Tinubu to issue a warning to the army, telling them to stop retaliatory assaults.


It’s important to address allegations of mistreatment and ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect. The Nigerian Army is taking this matter seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. Let’s wait for the results and remember to always treat others with kindness and dignity!
