Human rights activist and politician, Omoyele Sowore has vowed to mobilize justice for a female soldier allegedly being detained by the Nigerian Army after she received a marriage proposal from a Youth Corper at the orientation camp in Yikpata, Kwara State.
A video recently emerged on social media showing a member of the National Youth Service Corps who was proposing to a yet-to-be-identified female soldier who was fully kitted in her official khaki camouflage.
The video showed the soldier kissing the corps member at her supposed duty post, according to Daily Post reports.
However, a report later emerged that the Nigerian army had allegedly detained the soldier for going against it’s established laws of publicly displaying affection for a romantic partner while on duty.
Reacting to the development, Sowore, publisher of SaharaReporters, tackled the Nigerian army, saying the move was totally unacceptable.
In a post on his verified Facebook page, Sowore who vehemently condemned the action of the army, said the female soldier must get justice stressing that such treatment must stop.
The post reads, “Just came to my attention that the @Nigerian army detained the female soldier in this video for getting a proposal from a youth corps member.
“What the Army did is totally unacceptable and I would very much love to mobilise for her to get justice. Our society is getting more and more oppressive and discriminatory.
“This has to stop! Please if you have her contact or know how she could be reached, kindly DM me! #Revolutionnow”.
