Adeniran Adebayo, a senior lecturer at Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), has been assaulted by military officers from Myhoung Barracks at the 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital in Yaba, Lagos, for speaking out on behalf of his students. The officers are from the 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital.
Adebayo, an Information Technology lecturer, had just finished a test and was on his way to his office when he came across a group of final year students dressed in football jerseys and taking selfies with their phones.
He joined the students in their celebration, but when the soldiers caught sight of them, they charged forward and demanded that the students hand over their phones to the soldiers.
According to Adebayo, ” I learned that the soldiers were in school to beat up some students who had assaulted a senior colleague of theirs, so I explained to the soldiers that we were not troublesome students and that the students in my group were finalists who were simply celebrating. ”
They moved closer to where I was standing and asked why I had the audacity to speak during their conversation. After the question, he slapped me several times before inviting others to join him in beating me. ”
According to ” MyLatestGist” , after the soldiers had overpowered him, Adebayo was almost completely naked. His clothes were torn, his ear pods were missing, and his test scripts were lost as a result of this incident.
” I was almost completely naked after the soldiers abandoned me. ” During the course of beating me, one of them grabbed my earbuds from my pocket and dragged me by my trousers, ” Adebayo explained.
According to eyewitnesses, he was brutally beaten and dehumanized in front of a large number of students.
FIJ was informed by students that four soldiers had entered the college through the front gate on a mission to beat up some students who had offended a senior army officer, according to students. However, when they were unable to identify the students, they began to harass them with cell phones.
The Federal Investigation Agency attempted to contact Onyema Nwachukwu, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Army, but his phone line was disconnected. He had not responded to a text message sent to his phone as of the time of publication.
