A video currently trending online shows a female National Youth Services Corps NYSC being mistreated by a callous female soldier in Calabar, the state capital of Cross River.
The incident reportedly happened at the 13 Brigade headquarters in Calabar. The video was released on Facebook by one of the human rights activists cum journalists in the state named Agba Jalingo.
According to him, the name of the female Army officer is Lt. Chika Viola Anele. She is said to be at the 13th brigade headquarters presently. He is seeking just for the NYSC lady that was attacked.
According to him, Lt. Chika Viola Anele was caught on camera punishing the female member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) named Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia in Cross River over an argument on what is yet to be established.
The video, which is less than a minute, shows the officer pouring an unknown white substance on the Corps member who was kneeling and obedient to her at the time. Later in the video, we saw Lt. Chika Viola Anele hitting Fidelia, the female NYSC member with the bowl of what she was holding.

” JusticeForIfenyinwa. This is what a commissioned female Army officer, Lt. Chika Viola Anele, did to a youth corp member, Ezeiruaku Ifeyinwa Fidelia, serving at the 13 Brigade headquarters in Calabar after arguing. We understand that the leadership in the 13 Brigade is working to kill the matter. Let us make the officer very popular for all the wrong reasons. Share the video until it gets to the Chief of Army Staff and that Chika girl is brought to book. ”
Meanwhile, the army officials in the state are yet to react to the news. It is not clear whether Fidelia will be pursuing the case in court to enforce her right. We await the next move.
