We Didn’t Beat 51 Year Old Woman, Says Army
Reports have been denied by the 4 Brigade Command of the Nigerian Army that it’s troops who are placed at the headquarters of the Electricity Distribution Company of Benin in beating up a 51 year old woman whose name is Joy Agboghidi.
It was made known that the troops had helped in separating two persons who were fighting.
The statement which was signed by Captain Jonathan Unuakhalu, who is the 4 Brigade Public Relations Officer, made it known that the fight was between the wife of a man who claimed to be an Air Commodore against one Mrs Joy over rights on the road.
The troops only stepped in to maintain peace and order within the area. The fight resulted in the damaging of wind screens of both vehicles by both parties, the statement reads.
“The Nigerian Army made it known that the attempt was to destroy the good name of the Nigerian Army and also the good reputation of 4 Brigade which has been built over the years.
