Delta: FG urged to intervene in military’s alledged threat to rape Warri women in reprisal attack
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has drawn the Federal government’s attention to a viral video of persons dressed as soldiers who were seen purportedly
threatening to rape women in Warri Delta State and infect them with HIV.
The CUPP said the video of those persons in military camouflage was disturbing, saying that the situation should be investigated by the nation’s security high commands.
In a statement issued on Friday by the opposition’s spokesman, Barr. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, he urged the military to take restraint in the face of provocation, adding that those behind the killing of a soldier should be brought to book.
“As disturbing as the video is, and in recognition that the alleged threats were made in expression of anger against the alleged killing of a soldier by a mob in Warri, the CUPP calls on the Army High Command; the Police headquarters and indeed the Presidency to immediately swing into action and ensure the threatened reprisals are averted.
“This will be a dent on the integrity of the Nigerian Army, if this threats are allowed to be executed.
“The Army should take the moral high ground in this instance. It is not a show of weakness or acceptance that anybody could just kill a soldier anyhow; but there is every need to allow for a thorough investigation to unravel the facts about the deaths that occurred in Warri, of the citizen and the soldier.
“Afterwards, every person who had a hand in the killings will be directly held responsible for their crimes.
“Nigeria cannot accommodate another possible show of shame by an institution such as the Nigeria Army. These are trying times and everyone must be calm.”
