I’m still traumatized – Corps member brutalized by soldier speaks

A serving corps member of the National Youth Service Corps, Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia, brutalised by a female commissioned army officer, Lieutenant Chika Viola Anele, says she has not recovered from the incident.

Popular journalist and human rights’ activist, Agba Jalingo, shared a video on his Facebook page showing the officer pouring an unknown white substance on the kneeling corps member after which she hit her with a bowl.

Following the outrage it generated, Anele has since been arrested by the Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police, with the army claiming she has been sanctioned.

And now, Fidelia, in a video said she was glad she had finally returned to Lagos State.

“I am thankful to God for coming out of Calabar. I have received calls from different people all over Nigeria saying they saw my pictures and the way I was maltreated but I thank God I am back and safe.”

When she was asked if she was threatened or intimidated by the military authorities, she answered in the negative but noted that the military personnel were not in support of what Anele had done to her.

She added: “Ever since the incident, I haven’t been myself, the trauma, each time I remember what the lady did to me, I feel embarrassed because she reduced me to nothing and the whole incident makes me feel bad.”
