A female soldier in the Nigerian Army who complained in the viral video about sexual harassment from her superiors has been arrested and moved to Abuja.

A top military source familiar with the development said that she was flown from Lagos to Abuja on Tuesday.

The female Corporal had accused three senior army officers – who she identified as Col. I.B. Abdulkareem, Col. G.S. Ogor and Brig. Gen. I.B. Solebo – of oppressing her since she was drafted to Cantonment Medical Centre, Ojo, Lagos in 2022, for refusing their sexual advances.

According to her, she had been locked up several times for no reason, ejected from her apartment, and put in a psychiatric hospital for a month without any medication based on a false claim that she had a mental illness.

Also, her salary account was blocked by the powers that be.

Most damning were the soldier’s rape attempt allegations against a Colonel who later convinced others she was insane.

Her video came after failed petitions and interventions by colleagues.

While responding last Friday to the allegations, the spokesman of the army, Major General Onyema Nwachukwu said she had not officially reported her ordeal through the available institutional channels.
