December 9, 2016 – Outrage As 4 Soldiers Kill Man Over Stolen Phone In Adamawa

Adamawa State Police officials have launched a manhunt for some soldiers, who allegedly tortured a man, Umar Abdulaziz, to death for stealing a phone in the Ganaye Local Government area of the state.

Our correspondent learnt that Abdulaziz was accused by a female neighbour, identified only as Fatima, on Monday of stealing her mobile phone.

The woman, who reportedly befriended a soldier, was said to have gone to report the alleged theft to her lover.

It was gathered that the soldier, whose name had yet to be ascertained, came back with three other colleagues and dragged Abdulaziz away from the house.

The victim was reportedly taken to a corner of the compound, where the soldiers battered him, until he went into a coma.

The matter was said to have been reported at the Area F Police Station, after which policemen and neighbours came to rush the victim to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead.

A witness, who identified himself only as Abass, said Fatima also told her soldier lover that Abdulaziz beat her up in the house.

He said, “The lady lived on the next street to mine. Our house is around the barracks in Ganaye. She had a disagreement with Abdulaziz and the next thing was for her to call her soldier lover to deal with the victim.

“She accused the man of stealing her mobile phone. She also said the man beat her up and told her lover to deliver her from his grasp. When the lover came, there were four soldiers in all. They dragged Abdulaziz out of the house and off to an unknown location.

“They did not even ask what happened. They used knives to injure Abdulaziz. The victim collapsed, the police were invited and they came to the house. I am not sure whether they arrested any of the soldiers.”

He expressed dismay over the development, saying, “It is wrong for soldiers to harass civilians and even to the point of death. The military and police authorities must investigate this matter and bring the soldiers to book.”

    So sad, may the soul of the young man who died in his prime rip. I hope the Lady can now eat the guy’s corpse?

    I HATE this news. How I just wish that that woman, together with those four soldiers, is duly dealt with by the law! This is exactly why women befriend military men. May god protect the powerless and the “nobodies” in this country!

    These soldiers are animals in human skin. You were being assigned to protect your Country evidently that including all its citizens. You animals now feel that the next thing for you is to start terrorizing your people because you are in Zombie uniform. Looking critically around the globe, African Soldiers are the worst uniform men in the world. The world sees them as animal and uncivilized.

    Nigeria is one of the African Countries where soldiers feel more superior than the rest of the populace. Mind you, you guys are only trained to protect the Country during the time of war. Nothing more. You can be arrested by Nigeria Police in fact, the police has more civil power of arrest to arrest and detain any soldier who violates any civil rule or commits any crime.

    All industrialized Countries who introduced this military idea such as Britain, Uniited State, Germany, France etc are in full control of their Military personnels. Military officers in these countries always comply with the law of the state because if they misbehave, apart from facing military court marshal, they will ruin their career by facing dishonorably discharged from the military and may even affect their family. That is why when people view our behavior from outside, we look unto them like moron.

    We need to ratify our law in this Country. These zombies need to know their boundary and learn how to behave whenever they are in the crowd of civilians. Having said this, the Justice still has to take its course, those four soldiers must be found and bring to justice. Even though that guy stole a cell phone, you don’t take law into your hand.
