Physically challenged man Chijioke Oraku, brutalized by soldiers receives N500k from Ebonyi State Governor
Chijioke Oraku, the physically challenged man brutalized by soldiers for wearing a camouflage has received N500k from his state governor, David Umahi.
The governor demanded the immediate dismissal of the two soldiers who brutalised him.
The governor said, “I want to thank the Governor of Anambra State for his quick intervention in this matter. I was very happy when he reacted immediately and rehabilitated the young man. I also want to commend the Chief of Army Staff for the disciplinary action so far taken against those two soldiers. I thank the people of Anambra and Ebonyi who followed up on this matter.
“But we are going to take a picture of him (Oruku) and send to the COAS to demand the sacking and prosecution of those soldiers who carried such unprofessional act.
“I believe that the army has to be disciplined in their conduct. We must insist that discipline is maintained in our society.
“If enough punishment is not meted on those two soldiers, they would still carry out the same act.”
