A yet to be identified Nigerian soldier identified as Umar who was caught on camera after he damaged a car in Aje area of Lagos, bragged about being untouchable after the said act.
Twitter user @HayeslikeIssac whose car he damaged tweeted;
“Just got attacked and my vehicle damaged in Aje Street by Officer Umar who took One way and refused to move. He said and I quote “100 Buhari’s cannot do anything to him. Who are you…who do you know.”
Recall that a Nigerian soldier was also accused in November 2017, of assaulting a man in Ikorodu area of Lagos. It was gathered that a disagreement between the girlfriend of a military officer and Saheed, the younger brother of an electronics dealer in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, Lukman Lambo, left him with an injury and a need to undergo a surgery to regain the use of his left eye after he got chained to a motorcycle and got dragged him on the street by soldiers.
Punch reported that Saheed and the lady, identified simply as Dasola, who were lovers and neighbours at Itulubajo Lane, Alhaji Street, Ikorodu, until few weeks ago when they had a money disagreement which strained their relationship. However their fight started after they went to watch a clash between some residents which occurred around 11am on Saturday, November 11, in the house where Saheed lives and Dasola. It was gathered that Saheed, rebuked the said lady for poking her nose into a situation that did not concern her. At about 5pm on that day, Dasola reportedly led her soldier boyfriend in company with three other soldiers to Saheed’s residence.
The soldiers who didn’t meet Saheed at home, rained blows on Saheed’s elder brother Lukman’s face, handcuffed him to a motorcycle, rode the bike and dragged him on the street. Lukman was left by the soldiers after blood started coming out from his eyes.
