Soldiers Manhandle, Beat District Head in Adamawa to Stupor


By Tom Garba,Yola

BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Some soldiers fighting Boko Haram insurgents in the North East of Nigeria have said to have manhandled  the District Head of Gulak in Adamawa state, Muhammadu Bello  Ijadi Sumda, beating him to a state of coma.

Eyewitnesses said on Saturday ‎soldiers  had molested some  civilians  an  hour before the curfew time which is 6 pm, a development that necessitated the intervention of the district head who pleaded with the soldiers to exercise restraints.

Instead of buying the plea of the ‎traditional ruler, the soldiers allegedly pounced on him, kicking him and beating him until he laid flat on the ground.

The beating angered his subjects who challenged the soldiers in protest. But it took the intervention of the community elders to calm the situation which could have turned violent.

An aide to the  District Head who confirmed the incident said he believed the soldiers acted on orders because they knew his position as district head yet attacked him.

Efforts to reach the Army Authority in Adamawa over the incident proved unsuccessful.
