“I can’t Endure Them Anymore”- Nigerian Female Soldier Raise Alarm Over Alleged Sexual Abuses By 3 Senior Military Officers
A female soldier in the Nigerian Army has raised alarm in trending TikTok videos, accusing some senior army officers of oppressing her and threatening her life for rejecting their sexual advances.
The soldier, with the TikTok handle, ogunleyeruthsavage1, named the senior officers as Col. IB Abdulkareem, Col. GS Ogor and Brig. Gen. IB Solebo.
She said the officers had been oppressing her since she was posted to Cantonment Medical Centre, Ojo, Lagos, in 2022, for refusing their sexual advances.
I was locked up several times
The soldier said she had been locked up several times for no reason, ejected from her apartment, and locked up in a psychiatric hospital for a month without any medication with a claim that she had mental illness.
According to the female soldier, her bank account has been frozen since February 2023 without salary for no reason.
She further alleged that Col. Abdulkareem had made attempts to rape her, but when he was found out, he claimed that she had mental illness.
“If anything should happen to me, please hold Col. IB Abdulkareem, Col. GS Ogor and Brig. Gen. IB Solebo responsible, because they don’t want me to grow. They don’t want my progress.
“In 2022, I was posted to Cantonment Medical Center, Ojor where I met Col. IB Abdulkareem, who requested for me and I refused. Ever since then, this man has been my nightmare in the army – threatening to dismiss me each time he sees me.”
