Detained Female Soldier Will Be Penalised For Accepting Corper’s Proposal – Army by Maxymilliano(m): 5:43am On Dec 20, 2021

The Nigerian Army on Sunday said an unnamed female soldier who got romantically entangled with a male corps member at the National Youth Service Corps Orientation Camp in Yikpata, Kwara State, will be penalised for violating military rules and regulations.

The Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, in an exclusive chat with The PUNCH on Sunday, said the female officer violated military laws by getting involved in a public display of amorous relationship with a paramilitary trainee – a corps member.

Video clips showing a male corps member proposing to a female soldier at the Kwara NYSC camp hit the internet days ago eliciting pleasant reactions from many social media users.

One of the video clips apparently recorded on the camp’s parade ground showed the yet-to-be-identified corps member holding a ring as he knelt to ask the female soldier to marry him.

The visibly excited spinster, in military uniform, accepted the young graduate’s proposal and the latter went on to insert the ring in his love interest’s finger. The lovebirds later locked themselves in a warm embrace and kissed to the cheery applause of other corps members.

However, speaking with The PUNCH on Sunday, the Army spokesman said the female soldier violated the Nigerian Army’s rules and regulations guiding the codes of conduct of military personnel when deployed for duty.

Nwachukwu said the female soldier’s action amounted to taking advantage of her trainee, noting that the public would have been outraged and accused the Army of coercion had a male soldier proposed to a female corper during NYSC parade.

He said, “The female soldier in question violated the following rules of the NA: fraternisation while on official duty at the NYSC camp. That is, indulging in an amorous relationship with a trainee.

Personnel must have served for three years before he/she can qualify for marriage.

“She disobeyed the Armed Forces of Nigeria standing guidelines and directives for the use of Social Media. Indulging in romance while in uniform.

“Her conduct was prejudicial to good order and military discipline.

“All the above, if proven are in violation of extant laws with attendant disciplinary and penal implications.

“As a personnel, her task was to train the Youth Corps members and not to indulge in amorous relationship with any of them. These rules were put in place for the purpose of proper administration and discipline in the Army. If I may ask, what if the soldier was a male? How would the public have perceived his action? Definitely, it would have been perceived as taking advantage of a female Corper, a trainee, put in his care for training.”

The Army spokesman, however, declined comments on the likely punishment the female soldier might get but said “the Nigerian Military like all others, has its disciplinary codes, distinct from that of the general society. All personnel have voluntarily undertaken to be bound by this code.”

Some activists including Omoyele Sowore, who shared photos of military officers proposing to their love interests in uniform on Facebook, have since called for the release of the female soldier.

The Kwara incident occurred some three months after a female soldier, Lt. Chika Anele, dehumanised a female corps member, Ifenyinwa Ezeiruaku, at the 13 Brigade headquarters, Calabar, Cross River State, in September 2021.

In a viral video, Anele ordered the corps member, who was in her uniform to kneel down as she used a bowl to scoop muddy water from a bucket and poured same on her.

The Army had condemned the action and said the soldier would be tried for unprofessional conduct but it had yet to make the conclusion of the trial public.

The NYSC scheme was created in May 1973 by former head of state, Yakubu Gowon, as a tool for healing, reconciliation and nation-building after the horrific experience of the civil war between the Biafran side and the Nigerian State.

The scheme encourages the posting of graduates to states other than their state of origin as they are expected to mix with people from different ethnic groups, social and family backgrounds, and learn the culture of the indigenes in the location they are posted to.

The young graduates are camped for three weeks and are drilled in paramilitary skills by soldiers before they are deployed to their places of primary assignments.

As Nigeria’s security challenges aggravate in the last couple of years, some critics have called for the discontinuation of the scheme citing the kidnapping and killing of precocious corps members but the government has defended the continued existence of the scheme, saying it is still fulfilling its purpose as an avenue for ethnic integration.

But ishi ukwu, she was not getting married naw. She was only engaged! Many reasons I will never advise my enemy to join the NA. Of course she knew the rules. When has engagement turned her into a wife! What if they planned to wait until after three years? But I see some US soldiers display such affections and they are loved. What should be done to the soldiers videoing too? Aren't they as guilty as she is...unprofessionally taking pictures? Or is another oga who wanted to shine congo angry that a potential teagirl has been lost to a “bloody civilian” corper? Una never tire to dey use personnels?

Why una like to kill person joy and only remember rules and regulations on good matters with so much zeal and a yearn to doom it? Was there not rules of engagement during the Lekki night?

The female soldier should have remembered the terms and conditions of her job before engaging in such remantic affairs, but problems with most Nigerians is that they don't think before they act but whenever the nemesis caught up they called devil's work. As for the male copper whose primary assignment in NYSC camp is to propose to a female soldier I will leave him to face Nigeria labour market.

Apart from getting involved in a public display of amorous relationship with a paramilitary trainee ( A corps member) - I don't think it's a big deal to fall in love and besides love can caught up anyone against all odds at anytime.

See what our priority is.
Look at them flexing muscles on what common sense does not forbid. And they want to die in the matter.
Sponsors of insurgency can't be mentioned. We never got feedbacks concerning soldiers who harassed civilians but someone who fell in love must suffer.

Not qualifying for marriage is the least of the violations alleged.

More important:

Soldiers deployed to military camps are not to engage in amorous relationships with corpers. That is actually a grave violation of protocol.

Secondly, there is a social media policy that she violated.

That's one of the problems with the military. If you're not part of them, you're considered an enemy. No matter who you know and who you're. If them wan deal with you they'll with no one to stop them.

That's how I was punished for saying the truth while on camp 2016. Them almost wan lock me for guardroom nah my God helped me.
