Nigerian Army Summons Soldier, Commander For Assaulting Actress


The Nigerian Army says it has summoned a soldier, Sulaiman Olamilekan, and a guard commander, for allegedly assaulting a Nollywood actress, Jewel Infinity, at a checkpoint along the Port Harcourt-Onitsha Road, Rivers State.

It was reported on Wednesday that the Nollywood actress posted on her Facebook wall that she was allegedly assaulted by Olamilekan, while boarding a Sienna bus from Port Harcourt to Onitsha, Anambra State.

The actress, who was admitted to a hospital after the assault, had called on the army authorities to deal with the soldiers for infringing on her fundamental human rights.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, said on Wednesday that the soldiers had been summoned and necessary action was being taken by the army authorities on the matter.

He said, “The matter has been communicated to the General Officer Commanding, 6 Division and the necessary action is being taken. The soldier and his guard commander have been invited while effort is on to locate the lady.

“We enjoin the general public to have trust and confidence in the army by appropriately reporting issues to us; and if nothing is done, then they can go public with it.”

The actress, Infinity, had narrated that she was allegedly beaten with a wooden object by Olamilekan, after he accused her of insulting him while inspecting the vehicle.
“At the first checkpoint immediately after the airport, the soldiers us and asked our bus to pull over for the usual scrutinisation. One of them, the youngest, Sulaiman Olamilekan, began to molest me. He accused me of insulting him, but I was discussing with a lady sitting beside me.”
