[PHOTO] Endless cases of #Nigeria military brutality: Army cadet dehumanized man and dump body inside car trunk
The photo above shows cadets whose names were given as Peter Solomon and Abdullahi Fahad and attached to the Airforce Base, Ikeja.
The were caught dehumanized an artisan identified as Dahiru Lawal around mile 12 area of Lagos and dumping his body in their car trunk for allegedly breaking the windscreen of a Chrysler Stratus car with registration number KRD 267 DV.
It was reported that the cadets had forced Lawal into the boot of their car after......
dragging him on the ground for the said offence.
The bubble however, burst when the state governor who was returning from an inspection visit to Agbowa in Ikorodu, saw the situation and swiftly intervened to save Lawal who was then gasping for breath.
The governor who wondered how such inhuman treatment could be meted to a fellow citizen for breaking the windscreen of a car warned against a reoccurrence of such behaviours by law enforcement officers in the state.
Ambode ordered that the officers be handed over to the Police for further investigation and possible prosecution. Explaining their action to newsmen, the cadets admitted dumping Lawal in the boot of their car and torturing him.
However there was no published report about the military disciplinary action against these soldiers.
