The investigation is ongoing according to the military on the reasons a commissioned female officer, Lt. Chika Viola Anele would have dehumanized a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia who was serving at 13 Brigade Headquarters in Calabar, Cross River State.
According to a report by the army, the Nigerian Army has vowed to sanction the female officer who assaulted a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) publicly in Calabar, Cross River State capital and the Officer will be made to face a military panel that will determine her final judgments. But in the interim, the Army has asked for the forgiveness of the lady and her family over the humiliation from the officer. Some Nigerians have even suggested that the Corp Member should be compensated by the military for receiving such treatment from the officer.
However, there are unusual things about this incident that need to look at by Nigerians, the incident does not add up. It is a fact that the best friend to Corp members in Nigeria are the military personnel. They play with them and help them out in all situations as long as they are on the khaki (Corper clothing). They are even the ones that trained Corp members in the camp, while would then a commissioned female officer who is well trained and experienced in human relations and civil rights law resort to this kind of dehumanizing activity?
Some Nigerians have speculated that the lady might have done something very wrong that the officer thinks she should be punished in that way. Dehumanizing anybody is wrong no matter what the sin of the person might be, but let not all put the total blame on the officer and allow the military to carry out their investigation and share the findings with Nigerians.
