An unidentified soldier from the 22 Armoured Brigade of the Nigeria Army, Sobi Cantonment, Ilorin, Kwara State, has reportedly beaten a female nurse to the extent of breaking one of her legs.

The incident, it was gathered, happened over the weekend when the soldier took his pregnant wife to the hospital for delivery.

Sources told Daily Trust that trouble started when the nurse asked them to buy delivery packs upon admitting the soldier’s wife into the labour room.

“Instead of looking for the delivery packs, the soldier rejected the demand arguing that the state government has provided such items for pregnant women that might have come for their delivery at the hospital.

“But the nurse told the soldier that he misconstrued the information, therefore, he needed to provide the delivery packs for his wife to assist her to make use of the delivery packs for his wife’s delivery at the labour room”, a source added.

“But, the statement got the soldier angry and beat the nurse to the extent that one of her legs was broken”, another source added.

The development led to the admission of the nurse who is currently receiving medical attention at the hospital.

Contacted on the development, a Public Relations Officer of the 22 Brigade Armoured Nigeria Army Sobi Cantonment, Ilorin, St. Sgt Wasiri confirmed the incident.

He said that the authority of the Cantonment has detained the officer for further interrogation on the matter.
