Man Brutally Beaten By Nigerian Army Cadets For Allegedly Complimenting A Female Cadet Recounts His Ordeal

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORKFEB 06, 2016
Sunday Amari, a 25-year old man brutally beaten by several Nigerian Army cadets in Abuja for complimenting a female army cadet, has given SaharaReporters a full account of his ordeal. SaharaReporters first released the video of the gruesome beating of the man, and the video quickly went viral. In the video, a female cadet from the Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA) in Kaduna is seen slapping, smacking and kicking the victim, with other female and male cadets soon joining her to brutalize Mr. Amari.

In an interview today, Mr. Amari told SaharaReporters that the assault took place on December 31, 2014 at the Jabi Lake Park in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, where he serves as a parks and recreation officer. His account contradicts a claim by the Nigerian Defense Academy that the attack happened in Lagos. Mr. Amari stated that the cadets attacked and nearly killed him while he was at his duty post.

He disclosed that he was not the original victim of the violent cadets, who included two females and seven males. According to him, the cadets’ first victim was another man seen at the end of the video. He revealed that the cadets had brutalized the first victim to the extent that the man may have suffered serious brain or nerve damage.

Mr. Amari, who is fondly called “Sunny,” said the unruly cadets set upon him for fear that he might report their atrocities. He said he was carrying out his duty of moving around the park to ensure that everything was in order when he saw the nine cadets around 4 p.m. beating up a civilian. He said he walked towards the cadets and their victim out of curiosity.

According to him, the cadets then beckoned on him and asked why he was looking at them. Before he could speak, they descended on him and gave him a brutal beating even as he pleaded with them that he was a recreation officer at the park. He revealed that at least five of the cadets participated in beating him until he passed out. He said he was left for dead, adding that a kind stranger took pity on him and conveyed him to the hospital where he spent a week recuperating from his serious injuries.

Mr. Amari, who hails from Opoko local government area of Benue State, said he had reported the assault to the cadets’ director, a retired military officer, who told him nothing could be done since his attackers were military cadets.

The Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA) in Kaduna has issued a series of tweets claiming that the assault happened in Lagos while the cadets were on break, adding that the affected cadets would be punished. The NDA did not respond to emails from SaharaReporters seeking information on the identities of the cadets who took part in the horrifying beating of Mr. Amari.

hopefully with enough social media pressure, the government would be forced to do something decisive about this brutality.

I hope Nigerians do not keep quiet, but pressure the government and NDA to name, shame, expel and prosecute these useless sets of cadets educated and being paid on tax-payer's expense! The same set of people they now brutalize and beat to near death for an innocuous statement! Kudos to SR!

dis isnt d 1st tym stuff lyk dis is happening. it seems dts what dey r taught in N.D.A; 2 abuse d rights of nigerians & batter dem @ d slightest provocation. Mind u; these r future commissioned military officers, generals 2 b, future chiefs of staffs etc. Later, 1 idiot go dey wail when amnesty international talk say naija military engage in human rights abuse &crimes against humanity. Abeg if nigerian army try sweep dis 1 under carpet, make we carry case go I.C.C. E don too much. It gats 2 stop. If any of their personnel runs foul of respecting human rights, dey should be dismissed & prosecuted 2 d fullest extent of the law.

I have a suggestion that could work. Let every single military personnel in this country moves to a country like USA, where rule of law reign supreme and get replaced by the same number of rank and file from USA. This could be the only way of resetting the brutal genes in our military industry which is populated by wolves and barbarians.

Is this a country?

I remember many years back in unilag at the lagoon front, a car pulled over at the creative art studio and asked for the direction to unilag guest house. The occupants were awua in their uniforms. There was a student who wore a camou short. The coconuthead officer ordered his aide to seize the short from the student. The aide called the student, and told him to remove the camou and hand it over. The guy pleaded that he wore no under-pant, but he wldn't listen. The aide came down with his horse whip. The guy was in a dilemma. Should he obey and hand over the camou and go naked in full view of the public, or continue pleading. At that point, my avengers and I, who usually come to the front to calm our nerves with u know, had to come to his rescue. We confronted the soldiers and told them, ordinarily, if they weren't in their uniform, they would have been floating in the lagoon. But because of the fact they are properties of the government, we'll kindly enlighten them that a university is like a mini country inside a macro country. It has a head and a parliament. It has constitutions as well. You can't come in here ordering a student to pull off his short(whether it's a camou or not). Maybe when he leaves the school environment, then u can abuse the power vested upon you by the authority(not that you're individually powerful). Well, they had no choice than to let him go becos they cld perceive the C.sativa and C.indica smell from us, and realised we're not ordinary students, not with tinted eyes.

Now I ask again, is this a country?

===============================


Akious2k2:

I'm glad 2 hear dis from a fellow Akokite... Nice thing u guys did

I don't knw if u remember some ladies who sold, or stil sell, provisions at the lagoon front... Iya bobo, auntie oyinbo, with one other lady with a cute son. They joined the guy in begging the soldiers. The soldiers threatened to spew their provisions on the ground if they don't keep shut. That was what angered me and my H.M. We were ready to w**te these chickens in military attires if they were adamant to let him go.


Let me tell u the truth, I only pretend to love this country. I'm getting tired of pretending. Our own president cld go to UK brandishing us as criminals, or having the propensity to commit crimes in other nations. Isn't it senseless.?!

Isn't it senseless we're being led by illiterates with no civic education?!

The day I realised Nigeria is not a country, was the day I saw fulani herdsmen leading their cattle along major roads in abuja, when I went for posting. Motorists were patiently driving behind the herds. I saw it happen thrice, and they say we're a developing nation. We're just developing backwards!

The impunity of these young guys in the military is just appalling. Other day I went clubbing with a friend and 5 of them who were just about graduating from the NDA. Those guys turned the club upside down simply because some dude politely told one of them to leave a girl he brought to the club alone. I couldn't even make them behave themselves, felt so embarrassed and it was the last time I ever went out with them.

Hope this dude gets justice. This incidences happen all too often and it is high time the military hierarchy made an example of some of their boys to serve as deterrent to others.


Ps: There is no Opoko Local Govt in Benue state- it must be. Okpokwu they wanted to write.

Sincerely except he/she is armed, no soldier or police can harass me cos I will fight back even if I can't stand him, I will make sure I injure him.
I once engaged a policeman in fisticuff that I ended up bitten off is ear, after the brawl I spent some days in exile out of fear and that was all.
