A Nigerian lady by the name Olaide Oluwo has been physically assaulted by Nigerian soldiers for not greeting them when she passed by.
The lady shared her story on Twitter while disclosing that she walked past them around 5 pm and didn’t notice the Army men were there until one of them ran after her and got her mercilessly beaten up.
Olaide also said when people got annoyed about the situation and confronted them, they said unapologetically they had to flog her because she showed them disrespect by refusing to greet them when she passed by.
She tweeted, “This happened to me around 5pm. I did nothing to these people ..I didn’t even look at them until one of them flogged me ! I was walking and this guy insulted me ran after me and then flogged me with koboko! When people confronted them they said it’s cuz I didn’t greet them”.
A friend of Olaide also took to Twitter to call for justice for her by asking other tweeps to share the story multiple times so the appropriate authorities will get to know it.
