Soldiers beat up 51 year old woman in Edo state

Soldiers on Monday  assaulted a motorist, Joy Agboghide, for allegedly obstructing traffic  on Forestry Lane, Benin, Edo State. It was learnt  that the incident occurred at about 4pm in front of the headquarters of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company.

It was learnt that an  officer, a Major, was   said to have  emerged from the premises of the  company and instructed the woman to reverse her vehicle in order to ease traffic on the narrow road.

Sources said  Agboghide, a mother of six, however, explained that she had initially allowed about five vehicles to go  due to the indiscriminate parking of vehicles on the road. An argument was said to have ensued between the soldier and the 51-year-old woman, after the army officer  insisted that she must reverse her vehicle. The major, who   was said to have been angered  by the development, returned  to the BEDC  premises. The source said he later returned with   some soldiers said to be attached to the BEDC and  allegedly ordered them to beat  the woman up. Read more
