Khaki men from Myhoung Barracks at the 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, have brutalised one Adeniran Adebayo, A Senior Lecturer at the Yaba College of Technology.

He was reportedly brutalised for speaking up for his students. This was shortly after the Information Technology lecturer concluded a test and made for his office. He was yet to get there when he ran into final year students taking pictures with their jerseys on.

The Lecturer in the spirit of camaraderie joined the students to celebrate. Hardly had he done this when the soldiers accosted and requested for the phones with which they take pictures.

“I learnt that the soldiers were in school to beat some students who assaulted a senior colleague of theirs, so I explained to the soldiers that the students with me were not troublesome students but finalists who were only celebrating,” Adebayo said.

“One of them came closer to where I was and asked why I had the effrontery to talk when they talked. He slapped me many times after the question before others joined him to beat me.”

Adebayo was almost stripped naked by the terribly strong strong soldiers. The clothes got torn while the ear pods disappeared. His test scripts got lost in the violent process.

“I was almost naked after the soldiers left me alone. One of them took my ear pods as they dragged me by my trousers while they were beating me,” Adebayo said.

Eyewitnesses attested to how he was brutalised, dehumanized before many of his students. They narrated how some soldiers accessed the college from the front and with the intention of punishing some students who ran fowl by offending a senior Army officer.

FIJ reached out to Onyema Nwachukwu, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, but his line was switched off. As of press time, he had not responded to a text message sent to his phone.
