Woman Accuses Soldiers Of Killing Her Husband After Pestering Her For Sex.Photos

An argument between a woman identified as Mrs Aniefiok Otobong Jumbo and men of the Nigerian Army Attached to 6th Battalion, Nigerian Army, Ibagwa, Akwa Ibom State, has reportedly culminated in the death of her husband, Mr Otobong Jumbo at Uta Ewa waterside, Ikot Abasi LGA on Tuesday, 26/3/2019.

She said; "When I bent down to defecate, I saw flashes of torchlights pointed at me, it happened to be men of the Nigerian Army on duty at Uta Ewa waterside"

"They asked me to relocate to another point which I obeyed. They continued to point the torchlights on me. At that point I protested, which led to series of arguments.'That particular Soldier has been pestering me for sexual relationship, which I rebuffed,telling him I am a married woman"

Mrs Jumbo said that while the argument lasted, people of the community had gathered to witness what was going on.

Angered by the incident with the woman, two soldiers headed to the residence of the deceased which is within the waterside area and forcefully dragged her husband to the scene of the argument at the waterside.

According to the wife and some eyewitnesses, Mr Otobong Jumbo was severely beaten, totured and manhandled. He was hit by the soldier with their gun butt which led to his collapsing into the river.

According to eye witnesses "had the soldiers allowed us to rescue him at that point, his life would have been saved. But they didn't allow".

The family and the community are therefore calling on all relevant authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into this heinous crime and bring Perpetrators to book. Some of the soldiers fingered in the crime are S/Sgt Tagun Yakubu Banu and Sgt Austin Lamun Dauda of the Nigerian Army.
