Interesting: Soldier beaten silly in Kogi State for attempting To Woo A Married Woman

SOUTH MILWAUKEE WI. (GVE) – An unidentified soldier has been attacked by irate youths in Gadumo community, Lokoja, Kogi State over allegations that he made overtures to a married woman in the community.

According to Punch report, the incident happened on Tuesday close to the Master Energy Filling Station in Gadumo and the soldier was confirmed to have come from Lagos and was fond of making amorous advances to village girls.

An eye witness said the soldier made overtures to a married woman, who turned down his request, saying she was married, adding that when the soldier persisted, the woman reported to her husband.

“The woman’s husband confronted him and an argument ensued. Angry youths in the area, upon getting wind of the incident, mobilised and fought the soldier. He was given serious beating, but was later rescued and taken away by his colleagues,” the witness said.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Williams Aya, said the incident had yet to be reported to the command. He, however, said the Divisional Police Officer in charge of C Division visited the community and was told that the soldier had been taken away by the army.
