First of all, it’s sad that this is actually not shocking as it has become common in the Nigeria of today – soldiers and military officers harassing citizens, sometimes physically assaulting them because they feel offended.

This is the sad story of a soldier allegedly intentionally hitting a car and going on to physically assault the driver.

Here’s the story:

This happened at about 5:16pm on Moloney Street , Lagos Island opposite the police office/kam salem house.

We were on the right side of the road coming from Obalende but had to stop as there was an oncoming vehicle in our way. This vehicle should have been on the left side.

We hooted several times but the vehicle refused to move. We then heard other disgruntled drivers murmur “na soldier oh” and so we reversed in an attempt to wriggle our way out peacefully but to our surprise the soldier reversed and intentionally drove forward to hit our car.

These videos show the altercations right from when were were wrongly hit.

His name as seen on his uniform is Duru I.
