Nigeria: Female soldier beaten by superiors, sent to psychiatric hospital – Son

By Zuleihat Owuiye, Mamos Nigeria

The story you shared is quite concerning. It appears that Lance Corporal Philomena Nnamoko, a female soldier in Ogun State, Nigeria, was allegedly beaten and sent to a psychiatric hospital after speaking out about the sexual advances and harassment she faced from her senior colleagues. According to her son, she was assaulted and later taken to the Yaba Psychiatric Hospital. Her lawyer also claims that she was assaulted by a senior officer and that they fabricated a mental illness to cover up the assault. 

The Army spokesperson could not be reached for comment at the time of this report. This is a serious matter that should be thoroughly investigated to ensure justice is served.
