The Commissioner for Youths and Sports in Oyo State, Seun Fakorede has disclosed that the soldiers involved in the beating and shaving-off residents hairs in Ibadan have been arrested.
Recall that Pinaxonline.com earlier published a new story stating that soldiers were spotted flogging and shaving-off the hairs of residents and that Nigerian Twitter uses are calling for the arrest of the defaulting soldiers.
Well, Fakorede took to his Twitter page on Monday, November 2 to disclose that the defaulting soldiers have been arrested.
“My ears are full with news of the unlawful activities of some Soldiers of the Nigerian Army, over the weekend.
“I have immediately reached out to the Commandant of the Operation Burst and I’ve been assured that the men involved in this distasteful operation have been arrested…
“…and taken to the barracks — they will be dealt with accordingly. This will not repeat itself again in Oyo State. Please, kindly go about your daily business and activities without fear. Thank you.”
However, Nigerians are not having any of it as they want the soldiers to be paraded on national television or publicly disgraced just as the victims were.
