    I think is high time that Nigerian army under the leadership of the chief of Army Staff and PMB administration to come up with severe discipline measures for any soldier who acted in a barbaric manner to torment or humiliate innocent civilians. Those six bastards in Nigerian army should go and fight Boko Haram tertiorist INSTEAD of using their uniform to harass innocent Nigerians on the streets. How can they beat this innocent woman and battered her body this way? Those six animals in human bodies should be dismissed immediately from the military and sent to at least ten years in prison with hard labour. Mrs Ruth Orji should be compensated monetarily, and Nigerian army should pay in full all of her hospital bills. Recently, an Airforce officer Called Lt. Kalu brutally shot and killed his fellow lady officer simply because she cheated on another animal in human body. Lt. Kalu should be sent to death by hanging for the murder case in order to deter other barbaric soldiers from committing such an evil act. I also must admit that majority of our men and women in military uniform are doing an outstanding jobs with little pay plus no tangible benefits. But to restore back people’s confidence and trust in Nigerian army, those tarnishing good name and reputation of our brave men and women in uniform should be rooted out, sacked, and serve seroius punishment whenever they misbehave. I cried out when I saw those ugly pictures of deadly assault on Mrs Ruth Orji, this should never happen to any woman or mother in the 21st century any wherever in country of law and order. Shame on Nigerian Army!

    These fools need to be restricted at Barracks because that is where they belong and should there be need for them to visit public places, they must comport themselves in a civil manner. The Chief of Army Staffs and entire Armed Forces must brace themselves for huge civil lawsuits which may have a big void in their purse.

    We are now confused as to who are the big threat to civilians in Nigeria. The police?, the Army?, the civil defense?, the armed robbers?, kidnappers? or those who supply arms to these miscreants (armed robbers and kidnappers). Or is it the looting assembly whose only concern is their selfish interest. French type revolution is looming.
